Please remember, most demonstrators, even those well experienced in presentations, find it helpful to prepare a written outline of the component parts of the demonstration. Most outlines can be divided into three parts:
WHY-this is the “introduction” to the demonstration.
HOW-this is the “body” of the demonstration.
WHAT-this is the “summary” of the demonstration.

Demonstration and speech practices will be held every Wednesday, beginning on February 7th at 3:30pm. The last day to practice your demonstrations and speeches will be April 11th. If you would like to come to the 4-H Office to work on your demonstration or speeches, please feel free to use any equipment or markers. If you need help with your project, call Mr. Lilly or Ms. Gladys at 850-342-0187 to set up an appointment. Last year we had lots of winners, mainly because preparation were made early. “You see, the early bird catches the worm”. PLEASE START ON YOUR PROJECT NOW!!!
