2010 4-H Presentations Showcase Member’s Skills

Buncombe County’s 4-H youth showed off their hard work and great public speaking skills on the nights of May 28 and June 3 at county presentation finals.  These youth present information on their own selected topic with the aid of posters and other visuals to a panel of judges and a room full of parents, leaders, and other 4-H youth.  This year we had 10 youth presenting over two evenings.  Judges, parents and leaders were very pleased with the quality of the presentations, and many of these youth will go on to district competition on June 24th in Jackson County.  County winners and runners up are eligible to compete at district.  The winners are:

Seth Austin – County Winner – Beef Char – Grill
