Roberts began the contest with her speech, “Opportunities in 4-H” in the 4-H Promotion category. Rachell Mitchell followed up with her speech, “How to have a Good Attitude” under the category of Personal Development. Both Roberts and Rachell Mitchell placed first with their informative speeches.
In the 12-13 year old category, Alyssa Worthington discussed why she shows cattle, carrying on a family legacy. She also won first place.
Megan Mitchell also placed first while giving the audience practical tips with her speech titled, “Helpful and Hurtful Words.”
For the 8-9 year old category on safety, both Cooper Henson and Hadlee Hunt gave great speeches. Henson won second with his speech about ATV Safety and Hunt won first with her speech about Driving Safety.
