State 4-H Communications Contest

Join us on Saturday, April 26th for the State 4-H Communications Contest as a part of Maryland Day. 4-Hers will check in at Plant Sciences between 9:30 -10:30 and the contest begins at 10 a.m. with Awards presentation at 3 p.m. on Ag Avenue.

4-H Youth from across the state will be illustrating their ability to speak comfortably before a crowd!  Come applaud our talented 4-H youth during the 2014 State 4-H Communication Contest as a part of the Maryland Day celebration on the College Park Campus on Saturday, April 26th. 

As county/city 4-H units select their local champions  - please encourage them to represent your unit at the State Event.  The updated rules and transmittal forms are below. Remember 1 Champion from each age group in Radio Spots, Prepared Speeches, Interpretations and Extemporaneous Speeches is invited to participate.   A total of 12 (twelve) champions from each county/city can give their speeches.  Remember, last year's State Champions are not eligible to compete in the same age group of the same category.

As in the past Reserve Champions are also invited to attend.  We would like for them to serve as room monitors, announcers, helpers for the day.  Ask them to bring their speech and IF the county/city champion in unable to come  - we will allow the Reserve Champions to step in and give their speeches!!!

Maryland Day is a campus-wide event.  Bring the family and enjoy all the activity and listen for a while to some of the junior/intermediate/senior 4-H members give their Radio Presentations, their Prepared, Interpretive or Extemporaneous Speeches.
