Thanks to Ellis Co. 4-H'ers for helping us present some 4-H Day "pointers" for you as you prepare for 4-H Day 2019. Click on the category below to see examples or hear pointers to help you.

Ellis Co. 4-H Day is Sunday, March 10, 2019 at O'Loughlin Elementary School in Hays, KS.

4-H Day is an event where individuals and teams of 4-H members make public presentations about their project work. Categories include demonstrations, project talks, speeches, skits, music, readings, etc. Those members receiving a top blue designation are eligible to represent Ellis County at the Regional 4-H Day event.

Ellis County participates in a Regional 4-H Day event with Trego, Phillips, and Rooks Counties. Each county takes a turn hosting the event. Ellis County is set to host on Friday, March 29, 2019 at Hays High.
