Youth are invited to choose, prepare, and present a topic to 2 evaluators and if desired, to family, friends, fellow club members, and potentially the public.
Evaluators are instructed to provide positive critical feedback both verbally and through a standardized evaluation form following a rubric employed by 4-H educators regionally, following the Danish Awards System.
All participants receive a Certificate of Completion. Approximately 20% will be selected to advance to the district event (An average of 15% of our county presenters attend the district event).
