Description: New Hanover County 4-H’ers will give public presentations on May 4, 2019, during County Activity Day at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, New Hanover County Center Arboretum on just about any subject.

Presentations Registration and Talent Show Registration ends April 17, 2019.

We encourage participants to choose a topic they are passionate about and want to share with others. Some of the presentations from previous competitions were wildlife, manga artwork, how to set up a fish aquarium, healthy lifestyles, and archery. Even the youngest members of the 4-H family, 5-to-7-year-old Cloverbuds, are given the opportunity to try their hands at speaking.

Their time requirement is much shorter, three-to-five minutes as opposed to the five-to-twelve minutes expected of the 8-to-18-year-old presenters.

New Hanover County 4-H Talent Show will also be held during County Activity Day. Talent acts can range from singing, to dancing, to juggling, and even comedy.

A maximum time limit of five minutes per act. The top two talent acts will then move on to represent New Hanover County 4-H at the district competition. The talent show is open to 4-H youth ages 5-7 (Cloverbuds) and 8-18.
