RCFD Presentation Guide

You will want to keep in mind that this presentation will be judged as a Demonstration/Illustrated Talk. This means the best format for you to use is a “step-by-step” style oral format. Learn more information by visiting the most recent Presentation Manual (Updated 2020). If your craft permits, you may also show specific methods you used when making your craft (Show an example of the stitching using left over materials, or show the evaluators how your protective welding equipment is worn)

Although you are giving a speech using an official 4-H Presentation Rubric, you will still want to remember some important craft specific information that is useful to convey. These include, but are not limited to:

  • How long it takes to make your craft
  • Project is age/skill appropriate
