4-H Tropicana Speaking Contest

Florida 4-H proudly offers the 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking curriculum to the Lake County Public School System for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students free of charge.  Tropicana has sponsored the"4-H Tropicana Public Speaking Contest" since 1969 and provides classroom materials, certificates of participation, medallions for school winners, and summer camp scholarships for county winners.  With public speaking ranking amongst the top phobias adults have, it is imperative we target youth at an early age to guide them into being effective public speakers.  This program excels in helping young people write and deliver public speeches, which prepares today’s youth for their future careers and life goals. 

One top winner for middle and elementary school at the final competition will win a scholarship to 4-H camp .
