This year’s hosts are the Athabasca District.  They request competitors arrive at 8:30 am so that competitions can begin promptly at 9:00.

Speeches will be given in the Nancy Appleby Theatre. Presentations will be in the Athabasca Senior’s Centre. These venues are essentially across the street from each other. Lunch will be served in the Senior’s Centre following the competitions.

Please forward competitors names, titles (and topics if not obvious), and previous impromptu topics to atko.quarter.horses@gmail.com as soon as possible. Please cc me on your email.

In case of emergency (ie vehicle problems or sudden illness that will prevent attendance), please contact Virginia Wasieczko at 780-805-0159 (cell).

General notes:

  • Apparently some people have last year’s information regarding times and places.  Please see correct information below.
  • Presenters – Please should provide your own equipment (computer, projector, etc).  Arrive at least a half hour before the start time so that you can prepare your table. If you have questions, please contact the committee contact directly.
  • Speakers should provide their previous impromptu topics so that the committee can ensure that topics are not repeated.
  • Districts can print sponsor recognition banners from https://www.4h.ab.ca/downloads/documents/DistrictCommunications_Banner.pdf

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.
