When designing and presenting your demonstrations this year, use the following tips to make your best better!
- Select a topic that you know well and find interesting.
- Develop one main idea or topic to share.
- Use an outline to help you organize the idea or topic into three to seven points or steps that can be explained and/or shown.
- Secure the material and the equipment needed and organize to avoid clutter.
- Dress appropriately for the activity being demonstrated.
- Check your materials and equipment before you give the demonstration. Make words on posters large enough for all to read.
- Use a catchy introduction that will get the attention of the audience.
- Take your time and speak clearly, looking at your audience.
- Show how each step is done so everyone can see.
- Keep your materials orderly, and when you are finished with something, place it out of the way.
- Practice the demonstration with family or friends who will give suggestions for improvement.
- Work on avoiding using "ummm" or "like" when giving your speech.
- Smile and enjoy yourself, but avoid chewing gum, placing your hands in your pockets, or "fiddling" with equipment.
- Review your points or steps at the end, ask for questions, and thank the audience.
4-H is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States. With more than 6 million participating youth there are clubs in every county of every state. Adult leaders and volunteers work with youth (ages 5-19) in a variety of settings including schools, day camps, overnight camps, after school clubs, and other learning environments. They teach these youngsters life skills and provide opportunities for them to practice and use the tools they learn. They also teach them how to meet their own needs and those of the community in positive ways. The variety of projects offered allow young people to develop skills that will help them succeed and reach their full potential throughout their lifetime.
