Youths compete in 4-H speech, music contests
Twenty-four 4-H members, presenting 37 entries, received awards at the Chase County Public Speaking and Music Contest April 8, at the Zion Lutheran Church.
Through the 4-H Public Speaking Contest, youths 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, said Extension Educator Debbie Kuenning.
The 4-H Public Speaking Contest allows youths to communicate about current issues to real audiences, learn how to organize, prepare and deliver a speech, learn how to present themselves to others and develop self-confidence. In Chase County, 4-H members also have the option to prepare and preform a vocal or instrumental piece for the contest, Kuenning said.
Eight participants are eligible to advance to the Regional 4-H Public Speaking/PSA Contest to be held in North Platte on April 28. Members eligible to advance are Carter Kuenning, Odessa Zadina, Amber Tuller, JD Tuller, Ashley Grassia, Morayah Cupp and Jayme Gittlein.
