The 2022 4-H Saskatchewan Provincial Public Speaking Competition was held in Middle Lake, SK on April 9, 2022.
4-H Saskatchewan’s District 28 4-H Council hosted 32 members from throughout Saskatchewan in Middle Lake. This event was held in person for the first time in two years, and showcased the creativity and knowledge of 4-H’ers.
Whether it’s personal anecdotes about calving time, learning about honey bees, new words like “kerfuffle”, or getting tips and tricks from a senior about public speaking, the judges had their work cut out for them!
After much deliberation, the panel of judges determined the results to be:
1st Place- Josie Riou- Hanley Light Horse 4-H Club – “The Big Decision”
2nd Place- Kate Hougham – Hillmond 4-H Club – “Snow Forts”
