FFA Members Participate in Public Speaking

Public Speaking-- Victoria Nadar (left) and Olivia McDade (right) participated in the Creed Contest while Thomas Shaw (center) gave an Extemporaneous Speech at the Sub District Contest
Thomas Shaw, Victoria Nadar, and Olivia McDade represented Greenville FFA in the Public Speaking Contests held last week. They each spoke at the District 5 Sub-district Public Speaking Contest held recently at Tri-Village High School. Nadar and McDadde participated in the Creed Contest while Shaw participated in the Extemporaneous 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.

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.

The top two contestants in each area then go on to the District Contest with the top two District finishers advancing to the State Contest.

Thomas placed third and received a gold rating and Olivia and Victoria each received a gold rating. Olivia also placed 3rd. Congratulations to the Public Speaking participants from the Greenville FFA Chapter.
