State 4-H Public Speaking Contest

All Day
University of Nebraska–Lincoln East Campus
Through the 4-H Public Speaking Contest, youth have an opportunity to write a speech or a public service announcement (PSA) that incorporates the topic of 4-H and deliver it to an audience. The 4-H Public Speaking Contest helps youth develop skills for communicating about current issues to real audiences, learn how to organize and prepare a speech, develop speech delivery skills, learn how to present themselves to others, and develop self-confidence.

After participating at the county level, five (5) contestants in each age division (Intermediate and Senior) in both speech and PSA categories will be selected to advance to the State Public Speaking Contest. Following the contest, winners will be invited to showcase their speeches at the Nebraska State Fair. The State Public Speaking Contest will be held in Lincoln, Nebraska on Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
