District and Local Events
4-H Day: Speaking skillfully before an audience is one of the hallmarks that Kansas 4-H members have been successfully doing for over 100 years. Kansas youth through 4-H have learned the skills necessary to get up before an audience and eloquently speak. 4-H has helped youth learn the skills necessary to clearly organize and present thoughts and ideas through project talks, demonstrations, illustrated talks and public speaking presentations. The complete Kansas 4-H communication fact sheet series is listed below. These may be helpful to Kansas 4-H families as they begin to prepare for county 4-H day presentations.
Achievement Recognition: Each county holds this annual event to honor 4-H members and leaders. Membership pins, Key Awards, Project Awards, and more are given during this event. Everyone involved in 4-H, as well as community leaders, are encouraged to attend. 4-H'ers can receive awards by filling out their record books.
Camp, Campference, and Greenbush Camp have all been cancelled for 2020.
