FFA Chapter Announces 6th Grade Speech Winners!


The Tri County FFA Chapter conducted their first annual 6th Grade Rural Safety Public Speaking contest in May.  The activity was to create a safety awareness in the student’s home and community and develop oral communication skills.

Advisor Dave Barnard and sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Ginger Pittman coordinated the event.  Students developed and presented 2 - 4 minute speeches on safety topics.  The presentations were given this year by videos submitted or one-on-one deliveries.  Awards were provided by the FFA Chapter through a Harley Bergmeyer Leadership grant.  All participants earned a medal for their efforts.

Sydney Brauer earned the first place trophy.  Her speech was on “Cattle Safety”.  Kennadee VanWinkle finished as runner-up through her “Horse Safety” presentation.  She also earned a trophy.  Other top five speeches were given by:
