The Ohio Public Speaking program was initiated in 1946 to serve as a teaching method for farm and home safety. Since then, this program has added health topics and involved thousands of boys and girls in local, county, area, and statewide public speaking events. In addition, many 4-H'ers have presented their talks to local 4-H clubs, community groups, on radio and television, and at selected community events.
The 2014 4-H Health and Safety contestants, the Ohio Rural Electric Cooperatives, and the Ohio State University Extension urge you to maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle for yourself, your family, and the people around you today and always.
