Kyle Hilbert Wins the National Extemporaneous Speech Contest at the 2011 National FFA Convention 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."


We spoke with Kyle after he was awarded the championship Friday night on the stage of the 84th Annual Convention. Click on the LISTEN BAR below to hear our visit with him.
