On Jan. 26, Logan County FFA held its annual local speech contest.  There are 3 types of speeches, impromptu, extemporaneous and prepared public.

Impromptu speeches are speeches in an agriculture category such as beef, ag mechanics, and greenhouse. Speeches should last 4-6 minutes.

Extemporaneous speeches are over current issues in agriculture. There are also questions the participant has to answer at the end of their speech.

Finally Prepared Public is a speech that is based on a participant’s choice of a certain agriculture topic that must be memorized.

The judges for the contest this year were former president Wesley Estes and student teacher Emilee Graves.

The winners were as follows:

Ag Mechanics: Cody Watkins

Beef: Macon Barrow

Crop: Crandall Barrow

Dairy: Jessalyn Robey

Floral: Caroline Davenport

Fruit & Vegetable: Hannah Price

Goat & Sheep: Briley Robinson

Greenhouse: Meleea Reno

Horse: Bailey Cornelius

Nursery: Harley Robertson

Poultry: Micah Page

Small Animal: Olivia Bouldin

Swine: Zach Milam

Turf & Lawn Care: Hayley Hallman

Creed: Madeline Reno

Prepared Public: Addi White

The winners of the speech contest will advance to regionals in March to compete for Logan County FFA and have the chance to move on to state. Our FFA members and officers have worked very hard, and we appreciate the time they have put into their speeches and we congratulate the winners.
