Department 24 - Demonstrations - Saturday


A demonstration is a type of public speaking that explains how to perform an action easily and effectively.  The speaker creates a presentation that may combine verbal explanations, visual aids and practical performances to instruct how to acquire a skill, accomplish a procedure, or understand a process.  Topics can be diverse, such as “How to make biscuits,” or “How to draw a cartoon,” or “How I provide pet visitations for the elderly.” Demonstrations will be judged on subject matter, presentaion style, and audience impact.

  1. Online registration must be completed by 11pm on Wednesday, July 18. An incomplete entry form may lead to disqualification.
  2. Demonstrations will be held on Saturday.  Every effort will be made to schedule the demonstration in advance to avoid a time conflict with the exhibitor’s participation in outdoor classes.
