Public Speaking Academy


Public Speaking Academy has been cancelled for 2021. We look forward to bringing this event back in 2022!

Youth who participate at this exciting invitational event are guided through the basics and finer points of writing and delivering a speech, in a non-competitive setting. The Public Speaking Academy is open to all youth ages 11-13 years of age who are interested in learning more about public speaking. One does not have to be a 4-H member to attend, but academy spaces are limited to a maximum of 20 and will be filled on a "first come" basis.

The academy takes place at the Central Methodist University campus, with caring adult chaperones there to help every step of the way.
