Welcome to the Finger Lakes District Public Presentation Training Website
The Public Presentations Program is one of 4-H’s most beneficial and rewarding experiences. It is the one most often credited by 4-H alumni as having given them an edge above peers in both college and professional careers. It provides a unique opportunity to develop a positive self-concept and poise, gain self-confidence before a group, learn to express ideas clearly, respond spontaneously to questions, and gain subject matter knowledge. Through a progressive series of communication activities, youth learn to express themselves and their ideas.
The purpose of this website is to familiarize you with scoring Public Presentations using a Rubric specific to each category.
It is our suggestion that you:
*note the sample scores sheets were judged by two separate evaluators and scores vary. This should be expected and can lead to discussion in your group training.
