Thu, 19 Oct 2017 12:43:33 CDT

American Farmers & Ranchers Kicks Off 2017 District Speech Contests November 2 in Wilburton, OK The first of five district AFR speech contests begin Nov. 2 at Eastern Oklahoma State College in Wilburton, Okla.


"This is a great opportunity for students to develop basic skills and expand their knowledge," said Micaela Danker, AFR youth development coordinator. "Over the years, many of the speech contestants have gone on to successful careers in agriculture and business."


Contestants have their choice of categories to speak in, including science and natural resources, agribusiness, AFR/OFU, and agriculture advocacy and policy.


Danker said the agriculture advocacy and policy category is a new category added this year.


"Ag advocacy and policy is becoming a hot topic now as many young people are watching what is happening on social media and in the legislative arena," Danker said.


The schedule for other district speech contests includes:


Southwest - Nov. 7, Cache High School, Cache, Okla.


Northwest - Nov. 9, Autry Tech Center, Enid, Okla.


Central - Nov. 14, Tecumseh High School, Tecumseh, Okla.


Northeast - Nov. 16, Lone Star School, Sapulpa, Okla.



The state finals are scheduled for Dec. 2nd at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.


All district contest registrations will begin at 4 p.m. and the contest briefing will begin at 4:30 p.m. Judges and speakers will then disperse to assigned classrooms for competition. Immediately following competition, a meal will be served. Awards, special recognition and final comments will conclude the contest.
