FFA Members Participate in Public Speaking

Thomas Shaw , Victoria Nadar, Jack Garland and Hannah Grisez  represented Greenville FFA in the Public Speaking Contests that was held on January 30th, 2014.  They each spoke at the District 5 Sub-district Public Speaking Contest held recently at Tri-Village High School.  Garland and Grisez participated in the Creed Contest while  Shaw participated in the Extemporaneous Speaking Contest and Nadar participated in the beginning prepared speaking contest.

The Extemporaneous Speech Contest consists of researching and writing a 5 to 7 minute speech on an agricultural topic in 30 minutes. The contest is designed to stimulate the interest of the FFA member in agriculture and leadership by giving them an opportunity to speak before an audience. Shaw placed 2nd in this sub district contest and went on to the district 5 finals where he placed 1st in the district. He then progressed to the state semifinals where participated in the final 4 where he then  placed 3rd in the State of Ohio. 

The Creed Contest consists of a student memorizing the five paragraphs of the FFA Creed and presenting it to a panel of judges.  This contest is designed to develop leadership and the ability to appear before a group by freshmen students as they become members of the FFA.  He then answers three minutes worth of questions over his presentation.  They are evaluated on his presentation, memorization, and response to the questions. Jack Garland received a gold rating and was 4th in the sub district contest. Hannah Grisez placed 1st in the sub district and placed 2nd in the district where she then went on to the state semifinals placing her 8th in her division.

Beginning prepared speaking is a contest made for members to practice their memorization skills. Members write their own speech on an agricultural topic and then present in to a panel of judges where they are then quizzed and questioned over their knowledge of the topic. Victoria Nadar placed 1st in the sub district contest which progressed her into the district contest where she then received 3rd place.

Congratulations to all members involved in the public speaking contest!
