Thomas Wilkerson, a junior, competed in the Extemporaneous Public Speaking Contest. He selected his topic, “What techniques are available for farmers and ranchers to maximize their production on minimal land?”, from a blind draw.
He then had 30 minutes to use reference materials to build a four- to six-minute speech about the selected topic.
Wilkerson placed first in the competition, earning the right to compete at the state contest in June at the South Carolina State FFA Convention at Clemson University.
In addition, ninth-grader Virginia Martin competed in the Greenhand Creed Speaking contest, and 10th-grader Travis Comer competed in the Upper Division Creed Speaking contest.
Students in these two contests had to recite the five paragraphs of the FFA Creed from memory and answer questions from the judges.
