Communication Arts

State 4-H Communication Arts Event

The 4-H Communication Arts program: 

  • 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 finishing or completed third through sixth grade) and the Senior division (youth finishing or completed seventh grade through their final year in 4-H).

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