FFA PUBLIC SPEAKING WINNERS – We had a great evening at Area 9 Speaking contest. We took a lot of first time speakers and some experienced ones too. Every student was given the challenge to write a 6-8 minute speech over a specific agriculture topic, not an easy feat in itself. Results are as follows: Avery Schiereck 2nd- Cattleman’s Association; Makenzie Melton 2nd- Water Conservation; Lydia Eason 2nd- Pork Industry; Cheyenne Lame 3rd- Pet Breeders; Kraysen Leonard 2nd- Quarter Horses; Hannah Haberle Alternate- Cooperatives; Glen VanBummel Alternate- Pork Industry.

Levi Smith and Haley Decker both participated in the contest and did well.

Those who placed will compete next Thursday at Districts in Aurora.
