Event Details – March 21, 2020

C - Regional - Regional Communications Competition - CANCELLED

Start Date: March 21, 2020 9:30 AM End Date: March 21, 2020 5:00 PM
Location: Strathmore Civic Centre STRATHMORE AB  

Program Description:


After careful consideration and review, a decision has been made that all 4-H sanctioned activities and events in Alberta scheduled to take place between Friday, March 13, 2020 and Tuesday, April 14, 2020 inclusive are to be suspended effective immediately. This includes club, district, region and provincial levels.

We recognize and appreciate all the time dedicated to planning and preparing for various 4-H programming by our members, volunteers, and supporters across the province, however, we feel this is the best decision to keep the 4-H program a vibrant, safe and inclusive environment for youth. While the risk of contracting COVID-19 in Alberta remains low according to Alberta Health, the safety of our members, parents, guardians, volunteers and families is always first priority and we believe strongly that early action is the best way for 4-H in Alberta to help stop the transmission of the virus.


Our Regional Communications Competition will be here before you know it and the committee is already hard at work getting everything ready for the big day. 

In order to run the event, which will take place on Saturday, March 21, we need over 75 volunteers to make it happen.  We are hoping that you will consider volunteering in order to help us out.  The jobs are similar to that of a club level competition- impromptu table, timers, table movers, ruling committee, door guards (could be a member), greeters (could be a member), etc. All you need to do is come, everything else is provided. Note: parents of a member competing are not eligible to assist in the room the member is competing in.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Anita: 403-383-2424 or Thank-you, Anita Kraus & Angela Foster Regional Communications Co-Chairs

Times:  Public Speaking (speeches) 10:00 a.m.  |  Presentations 2:30 p.m.

There are four levels of competition (club, district, regional and provincial). The top members at each competition advance to the next level. Advancing to regional or provincial competitions is a very big accomplishment as there are approximately 2,000 people competing in each age category (junior 9-11 intermediate 12-14, senior 15+). Members are judged and receive feedback at each level of competition. They are also encouraged to evaluate their speeches or presentations to make improvements each time they deliver it.
