Public Speaking Tournament

Two 4-H members giving a presentation at the Knox-Lincoln Public Speaking Tournament.Due to changes brought on by Covid-19, there will be no Knox-Lincoln Counties Public Speaking Tournament in 2021. Instead, all 4-H members are invited to participate in the State 4-H Public Speaking Tournament, which will be held virtually over the weekend of April 16-18, 2021. There is ample support for youth preceding the tournament in the form of workshops and focused practice opportunities. These workshops (January 28, February 9, 16, & 23) are open to all youth who wish to practice their public speaking skills and those who wish to qualify for the state tournament. If you are interested in participating in the Maine 4-H Public Speaking Program and need assistance in any way, please contact us to discuss your needs. We are committed to making 4-H programs accessible to all youth, regardless of internet or technology access.
