The Lake County 4-H Program would like to thank Lower Lake Elementary School for allowing us to use their wonderful facility for our Annual 4-H Presentation Day on February 23, 2008.

Presentation Day is a 4-H public speaking event with both competitive and noncompetitive categories.

At this year’s event there were over 30 4-H members presenting an impressive selection of demonstrations, educational displays, illustrated talks, speeches and skits.

The highest scored members in each category receive trophies. This year the trophies went to Kelsey Carstensen and Cody Smith – Agriculture; Shea Odom - Home Economics; and Jacob Scott-Casey – Other.

The youth in the competitive category, who achieved gold awards at this event, may advance to Sectional and possibly State level competitions.

We would also like to extend a special thank you to Karen Hayes from Kelseyville 4-H who was the event chair and did an outstanding job in organizing and putting on the event.
