l m m CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, March 3 - Monday, March 6, 2006 - 83 Submitted photo Sussex County 4-H Public Speaking Winners (l-r) Taylor Magee, Brian Tinsman, Jonathan Winston, Josiah Winston. Recently, Sussex County 4-H held its annual Public Speaking Contest at the University of Delaware's Research and Education Facility in Georgetown. Twenty-seven participated this year, and selected a topic of their choosing. The contest is open to any 4-H member aged 8-.19. Contestants are judged on their research, presentation skills, natu- ralness, poise, and length of time depending on their age division Many people who know 4-H as agricultural-based youth program are surprised to learn the many educational opportunities that are offered. Public speaking is only one of more than 100 project areas a 4-H member may choose. Susan DeFord, 4-H extension educator, says that public speak- ing in particular is a lifetime skill and builds self-esteem and confi- dence in everyone who partici- pates. "It's wonderful to watch the progress of a contestant who has participated over the years," DeFord said. The winners, who will all advance to the state contest in July at the 2006 Delaware State Fair, include the following individuals. 8-9 Division: Josiah Winston, Milford, Independent 4-H, "Mountain Madness" 10-11 Division: Taylor Magee, Lincoln,Harbor Lights 4-H Club, "Hey Dude, Drop the Lighter" 12-13 Division: Jonathan Winston, Milford, Independent 4- H, "How May I Serve You" 14+ Division: Brian Tinsman, Seaford, Clover Knights 4-H, "Aftermath of Katrina - What Went Wrong." 4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is the largest youth program in America and it is part of the Cooperative Extension System which is sup- ported locally by the University of Delaware.
