When a former 4-H member is asked, "What did you gain through 4-H that has made the most impact on your career success?" the skill most often mentioned is public speaking.

Kentucky 4-H State Communications day is the state level culminating event for 4-Her's across the state. To participate in this event, 4-H members must qualify at area/district communications events.  For more information, contact your county 4-H Youth Development Agent.
