Project Achievement

Posted by romeethredge on March 22, 2013

Project Achievement is a good accomplishment for young 4-H’ers. They can do an illustrated talk on anything from Armadillos to Zinnias and can even show their singing , dancing or instrumental talents as well. We had a great group of 19 Seminole County 4-Hers this past Saturday that went to Moultrie with us to compete in a regional contest. They all did well and many came back with either a blue, red or white ribbon, but that isn’t as important as the experience they had getting up in front of others giving a speech.

 I remember well doing my DPA speech that my Daddy helped me complete concerning Soil Science even though it was forty years ago. It helps a young person realize that they can speak in front of a group of folks although it is a bit scary.
