Activities & Events

Albany County 4-H offers a wide variety of workshops and events that are available to all youth. Please see our calendar events for upcoming opportunities.

4-H County-Wide Events

Public Presentations
This program is one of the most beneficial of all of the 4-H Programs. All 4-H members are encouraged to develop a demonstration or illustrated talk based on some practice, skill or knowledge learned, preferably through a 4-H project. Youth then give a presentation or demonstration in front of a team of judges who evaluate the young person and provide constructive criticism. Youth who graduate or “age out” of 4-H have commented that the Public Presentations Program is an experience that has helped them with successful job and college interviews.

Fashion Revue
This event is also open to all 4-H members in Albany County. Members make or buy an article of clothing that they alter, have it evaluated by a judge, and then model it at the Fashion Revue in front of a crowd of onlookers. At this event, members are selected to represent Albany County at the New York State Fair 4-H Fashion Revue. This is terrific experience for the young people as it builds their self-esteem and provides a framework for promoting positive youth development.

Achievement Night
This event is held to celebrate the completion of a job well done and to recognize 4-H members for their accomplishments during the year. Volunteers are also recognzed for their dedication and efforts on behalf of the 4-H Program.
