Each year, Floyd County 4-H hosts the Northwest District Cloverleaf Project Achievement but due to COVID restrictions staff and 4-H members had to think outside of the box.  A virtual competition was developed by State 4-H Leaders to continue to provide this valuable public speaking opportunity to 4-H members across the state.

As in the past, students were selected from their schools to represent Floyd County 4-H in the competition.  Each participant selected a subject that they wished to present on, developed a 4-6 minute presentation, prepared visual aid items and then presented their project to 4-H staff where their presentation was recorded for judging.  In some cases, participants selected areas of Performing Arts where they presented a vocal demonstration.

While the contest itself was very different, the benefits gained were much the same. The Floyd County 4-H Agent Abbie Salmon said, “It is so important to give kids the opportunity to compete, put together projects, and practice public speaking skills.  We were so happy to be able to offer this when so many things have been canceled due to COVID.”
