Have you heard of the Divert NS Senior Member Public Speaking Competition? This is an additional competition stream that has been added to our already tried-and-true 4-H NS Public Speaking Competition.
The first year for the Divert NS stream was 2023 where it was open to all 4-H NS Intermediate members across the province. 2023’s Divert NS Public Speaking winner was Raelin Bateaux! Raelin was the recipient of a $500 cash prize and went on to present her winning speech at the Divert NS Annual General Meeting (AGM). Check out Raelin’s speech here https://fb.watch/pCqvg4PLOd/
This year, the Divert NS competition stream is open to 4-H NS senior members! Senior members will follow the same process as last year’s intermediate members. Start by selecting a pre-determined topic provided by Divert NS, prepare and practice your speech, and winners starting as club level will continue to move on all the way up to the Provincial Rally where you could win cash!
For more information, please see the Public Speaking page on the 4-H NS website (linked below) or reach out to your Regional Program Coordinator (RPC). We’re excited to be able to offer this additional stream to our members!
