A-C FFA Speakers: Unprecedented Victories Recently, after advancing through the county and district level contests, four Amanda-Clearcreek FFA members have made chapter history by having four members qualify for the State Public Speaking Contest, and coming home with THREE state winners, which has never happened before in the state of Ohio!
The Public Speaking Career Developmental Event is one of the most rigorous contests that the FFA has to offer. It is broken into five categories: Creed, Advanced Creed, Beginning Prepared, Advanced Prepared, and Extemporaneous. Emma Dearth competed in the Creed division, where Freshmen members present the FFA Creed, and then answer questions regarding it. Emma placed in the Top 6 in the state, which is the highest an Amanda-Clearcreek FFA member has ever placed. Lexie Kougher competed in the Beginning Prepared category, where she had to give a memorized 4 to 6 minute speech over a topic related to agriculture, where she choose to speak on Algae Blooms, followed by questions from the judges. Lexie placed in the top two in her room in the preliminary round, which allowed her to advance to the finals where she placed first in the state! Samantha Young participated in the Advanced Prepared Category, where she had to present a memorized six to eight minute speech, also relating to agriculture, where she choose to speak on Nanotechnology, and then answered questions regarding it. Samantha placed first in the preliminary round, and also went on to place first in the state!! Finally, Josie Montoney participated in the Extemporaneous category, where she had to draw one of 125 topics, and was given half an hour to prepare a speech and present it, followed by questions from the judges. Josie placed first in the preliminary round, advanced to finals, and went on to place first in the state.
This is a incredible accomplishment for the Amanda-Clearcreek FFA Chapter, and is a first in the state. Samantha and Josie will continue on to represent Ohio at the National contest next fall in Louisville, Kentucky.
