Cooperative Extension offers public speaking class

A frequent fear in adults is giving a speech in front of a group of people. One way the N.C. Cooperative Extension helps youth practice this skill is through participation in 4-H public speaking and presentation competitions held at the county, district and state levels.
To help prepare youth for these competitions and speaking in public, Rowan County Cooperative Extension will be hosting a four-week 4-H Speak Up program.
The 4-H Speak Up program provides communication, presentation and self-confidence skills for young people. During the program, led by Cheryl Kane from Barton & Kane Consolidated, participants learn the parts of a speech, communication styles, how to organize a speech and types of speeches. Each week, youth prepare and deliver a speech.
Two sessions will be offered. Session one is for ages 7-11 and will be from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Session two is for ages 12-18 and will be from 6:45-7:45 p.m. The sessions are held on Monday evenings March 12 through April 2. The cost of the series is $10 per person. Space is limited. You must call 704-216-8970 to register by Monday.
For more information concerning the 4-H Presentation or Public Speaking competitions or the North Carolina 4-H program, contact Sara Drake, 4-H Extension Agent, at 704-216-8970 or sara_drake@ncsu.edu.
