FFA Students Advance to Area in Speaking Development Event

Jan 28, 2022

High school students participating in Frisco ISD FFA programs have several skills they are developing under the guidance of their CTE teachers. In addition to award-winning livestock, FFA students are also award-winning speakers. 

Last week, FISD FFA Chapters competed in the District IV Speaking Development Event contest at Aubrey High School where FISD students excelled in several categories. Six FISD competitors have advanced to the Area V Competition that will be held in the spring.

Speaking Development Events are designed to develop the ability of all FFA members to express themselves on a given subject. Students are encouraged to develop their communication skills and learn to formulate their remarks for presentation in a variety of situations. 

For example, FFA students who compete in Extemporaneous Public Speaking learn how to think on their feet and make a case quickly and persuasively. Contestants are given 30 minutes to prepare a speech on one of the three randomly selected agricultural topics. After delivering a speech, contestants are asked questions about their speech and topic.

Congratulations to all of the students who participated, especially those denoted with an asterisk who are advancing to Area. Best of luck in the next round of competition!
