4-H Communications Program Empowers Young People

Despite being the number one fear of most Americans, the ability to speak in public can open many doors in terms of personal friendships and professional advancement. Polish those public speaking skills at the Oldham County 4-H Communications Event on April 9!

Competitive events give youth the opportunity to practice what they have learned; receive positive, constructive suggestions to improve; and overcome the fear of speaking in public. As well, senior 4-H members may compete in mock job interviews.

District level winners are invited to the University of Kentucky to showcase their public speaking skills during the State Communications Day. For more information on our communication programs, contact the Oldham County Cooperative Extension Service.
