Christian County 4-H Presents the Public Speaking Contest

The Christian County 4-H is getting set for their year of programs and activities for the Cloverbuds and 4-Her’s that educate and create well-rounded youths. The Public Speaking Contest will challenge new and returning 4-Hers on their presentation abilities in front of their supportive 4-H counterparts.

The Public Speaking contest will take place on Thursday, March 14th at the Christian County Extension Office starting at 6:00 p.m.

Jessica Jaffry, new Youth Development Coordinator for the Christian County 4-H says building these communication skills early on for the kids will prepare them for whatever comes next whether that is 4-H or just having conversations in daily life.


Sara Marten, County Director for the CC 4-H says she started out as a young 4-Her who was nervous to speak in public but was shown the ways of public speaking and developed confidence from that experience, now she represents the CC 4-H to spread that confidence to the next generation.


The CC Extension Office is located at 1120 North Webster Street in Taylorville. To get involved in the Public Speaking Contest for the CC 4-H visit the website at extension.illinois.edu/cjmm/4-h-christian-county.

Sara Marten and Jessica Jaffry appeared as guests on the WTIM Morning Show.
