Save the date: September 28, 2019
University of Missouri, Columbia
Registration will run June 15 through August 31 in 4-H Online. No late registrations will be accepted.
The 2019 State 4-H Public Speaking Contest will be held in September at Middlebush Hall on the MU Campus in Columbia. The contest takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Youth compete in a communication category of their choice, alongside other Juniors (ages 8-10), Intermediates (ages 11-13) or Seniors (ages 14-18) in their age division. Youth may register in the appropriate age division according to their 4-H age (their age on December 31 of the program year). For intermediates and seniors, first place finishers from a previous State 4-H Public Speaking Contest may not compete in that same category a second time, until they advance to the next age division. Juniors do not have this restriction.
Questions about the contest may be directed your local 4-H professional or to Bradd Anderson at the 4-H Center for Youth Development.
