District Communication Arts

The 4-H Communication Arts program will:

  • help participants develop communication skills that are useful throughout a lifetime
  • provide participants an opportunity to practice their skills before a group;
  • provide participants an opportunity to gather and organize information, equipment and props for public presentation;
  • develop participants' confidence in making public presentations; and
  • evaluate and enhance communication skills.

The Communication Arts program is open to any youth involved in Extension youth programs. It includes two age divisions: the junior division (youth 8 to 13 years old before September 1) and the senior division (youth ages 14 to 18 before September 1), the start of the current 4-H year.

Levels of Involvement

Club: All 4-H members are encouraged to give a public presentation at the club level.

County:  Any youth can participate in the county or multi-county 4-H Communication Arts event.

District: Ten district events are held. Each district consists of the group of counties in the multi-county program units (MPUs).

State: The State event will be held during the State Fair in July for the winning Teen and Preteen participants of each category in the District events.

Additional Information on the 4-H Communications Arts program is available through your local extension office.
