Giving a Presentation for 4-H soon?
Here are a few quick tips!
Tip #1: The Intro
Before talking about your chosen topic, introduce yourself. State your name, your year in 4-H, and what you will be talking about. Don't forget to smile! :)
Tip #2: The Topic
If you're not interested in your topic, why should your audience be? When giving a 4-H presentation, you will be much more excited and confident if you speak about something you enjoy.
Tip #3: The Visual
When presenting in front of an audience, visuals are great because they help people follow along with what you're saying. Consider making a poster, bringing props, showing a PowerPoint, or creating some other related visual aide to really enhance your presentation.
Need more tips?

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a tournament divided into three main parts:
- The Robot Game - This is a timed challenge, where youth place previously programmed robots on the field and strive to obtain as many points as possible in the time allotted.
- The Core Values - This is a character challenge, where youth are encouraged to engage in Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition (trademarked words meant to inspire friendly competition).
- The Project - Finally, this is a research challenge, where youth are presented with a problem and must work together to design a creative solution to that problem.
Here is the 2015-2016 teaser for the Project portion of the tournament:
