Laurel County 4-H held their Communications Day event virtually this year. They had 25 participants, Laurel County youth ages 5-18, delivering their own speeches and demonstrations, talking about a wide range of topics from how to do magic tricks to dirt bike safety to baking cupcakes.
Communications Day occurs at the county, district, and state levels. To participate in each higher level of the event, 4-Hers must qualify to move forward in their respective categories. 12 Laurel County participants qualify to move on to the district level. 10 of the district level participants have now qualified to move on to the state level.
