Public speaking is one of the most feared tasks a person can do but not for these local 4-Her’s. Carroll, Lee and Whiteside County 4-H held their annual Public Speaking Contest March 2 at the Milledgeville Public Library.
Participants included: Brook Bradbury, Hayden Bradbury and Linnea Thorngren from Carroll County; Natalie Pratt from Lee County; and Lara Bielema, Lola Klimstra, August Kuehl and Alex Manon from Whiteside County.
The crowd was entertained with a variety of speech topics. Selected for State Fair from each county were: Carroll County, Linnea Throngren with her Illustrated Speech; Lee County, Natalie Pratt, with her Formal Speech; Whiteside County, August Kuehl and Alex Manon with their Team Oral Interpretation, Lara Bielema with her Formal Speech, and Lola Klimstra with her Oral Interpretation. Top Junior Presentation was Linnea Thorngren and Top Senior Presentations were August Kuehl and Alex Manon.
Congratulations to these young people, they should be very proud of all their presentations.
