EC - Regional - Regional Public Speaking - CANCELLED

Location: Stettler Ag Society, 4516 52 ST STETTLER  

Program Description:

 

After careful consideration and review, a decision has been made that all 4-H sanctioned activities and events in Alberta scheduled to take place between Friday, March 13, 2020 and Tuesday, April 14, 2020 inclusive are to be suspended effective immediately. This includes club, district, region and provincial levels.

We recognize and appreciate all the time dedicated to planning and preparing for various 4-H programming by our members, volunteers, and supporters across the province, however, we feel this is the best decision to keep the 4-H program a vibrant, safe and inclusive environment for youth. While the risk of contracting COVID-19 in Alberta remains low according to Alberta Health, the safety of our members, parents, guardians, volunteers and families is always first priority and we believe strongly that early action is the best way for 4-H in Alberta to help stop the transmission of the virus.

There are four levels of competition (club, district, regional and provincial). The top two members at each competition advance to the next level. Advancing to regional or provincial competitions is a very big accomplishment as there are approximately 2,000 people competing in each age category (junior 9-11 intermediate 12-14, senior 15+). Members are judged and receive feedback at each level of competition. They are also encouraged to evaluate their speeches or presentations to make improvements each time they deliver it. Members who advance to the provincial public speaking competition are required to write a new speech based on a theme or topic they are provided with.
