4-H Visual Presentations

Visual Presentations awards, 2018

Over 200 4-H members and their families gathered at Bedford Middle School in Bedford on April 14.  4-H members, ages 8-18, presented on a wide range of topics.  A first and second place winner was selected in each category and recognized at a special awards ceremony.

This event started as State 4-H Demonstration Day in 1955 which took place on the UMass Amherst campus.  In the 1960's the name was changed to 4-H Visual Presentation Day and after that the event moved off the UMass campus.  4-H Visual Presentation Day is going strong after 63 years!

The program is supported through the Massachusetts 4-H Foundation by the Shirley Kane fund.  Shirley Kane was a 4-H volunteer leader who believed strongly that the Visual Presentation program taught 4-H members critical public speaking and communication skills.  She started an endowed fund to support the program.
