State 4-H VIRTUAL Horse Communications Contest
Registration for this event must be made online by March 1st, 2021, including payment. No late entries will be accepted for any reason. As this contest determines which contestants will represent Ohio at national contests, ONLY senior 4-H members are allowed to compete in the senior division to comply with national eligibility requirements.
The primary objective of the Communications Contest is to provide, in a friendly but competitive setting, an opportunity for youth enrolled in a 4-H horse project to demonstrate their communication and media skills on a specific equine or equine related topic. Youth may compete in the following categories: Public Speaking, Individual Presentation and Team Presentation. Junior and Senior contests will be held simultaneously via ZOOM on Saturday, March 13th, 2020. Presentation times will be assigned on a random basis and ZOOM meeting links will be sent via email by Monday, March 8th. Results will be posted on this webpage by no later than Monday, March 22 and score sheets will be sent directly to participants including awards. The office will also verify with the county extension professional that members are in good standing.
