Presentation Day

Remember, it takes many hands to make our County Presentation Day work. Please encourage your families and senior 4-H members to sign up as evaluators, area chairs, and tally captains on our survey page. (This is the same form used to collect information about presentations). Stay tuned for information about an evaluator training:


Registration for Presenters at County P.D. is also open! Registration is being done via online survey which can be found here:

In 2019, Marin, Sonoma, and Napa 4-H Programs will offer cross-county enrollment for Presentation Day events, meaning that Marin 4-H youth are eligible to attend Sonoma or Napa's County Presentation Day, if they are unable to attend Marin County Presentation Day. Visiting presenters must provide one evaluator for every 3 presentations offered. Visit the links below for registration information. Be sure to review the information on these pages carefully as rules and norms around Presentation Day differ from County to County.
