For the second year in a row- Oklahoma is the home of the National Champion in the Extemporaneous Speech Contest at the 2011 National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. Last year- it was Ashton Mese of the Kingfisher FFA Chapter- here in 2011, it's Kyle Hilbert, a Senior at Depew High School and the President of his Depew FFA Chapter.
The National FFA Organization describes the Extemp or Impromtu Speech Contest like this- :In the Extemporaneous Public Speaking CDE, participants are given 30 minutes to deliver a speech on one of three assigned agricultural topics. Students must learn to think on their feet and develop an argument quickly and persuasively."
