Demonstrations are a fun, educational hands-on approach to learning and teaching for students. 
Fourth and Fifth grade participants are asked to conduct an up to three to five minutes educational hands-on show and tell “how to” demonstration. Participants use pictures, posters, or displays to conduct a presentation for the class, group, or judge illustrating a skill, hobby, or other interest related to a 4-H project. The demonstration may be on anything that is educational; for example, how to do a favorite activity, past time, or hobby.
Sixth, Seventh and Eighth graders are to construct a science board related to a 4-H project. The youth will present using the information on the board. The board may include photos, steps, materials, and items can be displayed on the table in front of the board. Time is limited to up to 5 minutes.
Participants will not be allowed to demonstrate any item(s) not allowed in school.
Guidelines for the 4-H Demonstration include:
1) The speech along with the demonstration should last up to 5 minutes
2) Participants will need index cards, but may also use visual  aids (including posters, pictures, hands-on supplies)
3) Have good eye contact, speak loudly, have good posture, and not go over the time limit
4) Write an introduction, body, and conclusion for your presentation.
Local school and community group participation in the demonstration project are generally held in February. The Hamilton County Contest is generally held in March and the Multi County Contest held in May.
