Educational presentations are planned talks in which one or more 4-H members teach others about a project or activity. The talks are ways of sharing useful information and of showing and telling others how to make or do something.

Two types of 4-H educational presentations are demonstrations and illustrated talks. These types of talks are effective because people learn faster and remember longer if they see as well as hear.

The greatest value of demonstrations and illustrated talks, however, is to the 4-H members who plan, prepare, and present them. Every 4-H member profits in some way from planning and presenting an educational presentation. Through these presentations, 4-H’ers can:

◆Work on something they like and are interested in
◆Gain new knowledge and learn about a specific subject
◆Learn to plan and organize their thoughts so they can express themselves more clearly
◆Emphasize the major points of a presentation with visuals or examples
◆Increase in poise, confidence, and self-assurance
◆Develop the ability to demonstrate good judgment and speak and act well before an audience
◆Listen to the opinions of others
◆Teach and show others improved methods and practices, thus performing a service to the community
◆Take part in interesting events and activities
