The Jackson County 4-H Clubs held their annual 4-H Public Speaking Contest on Saturday, Jan. 11 at Western Oklahoma State College.


4-H members, from grades three through eight, participated in the regular speech, illustrated presentations, interactive speech and display, extemporaneous, and the job readiness interview and power point classes. The 4-H Public Speaking Contest builds character and self confidence essential to youth development and helps students improve communication, one of their most basic life skills.


Engraved trophies were awarded to first place winners in each category, sponsored by Burl Winters and Lynn Strickland.


Volunteer judges for the event were: Lynn Strickland, Dani Jensen, Julie Strickland, John Dee Butchee, Dana Butchee, Loren Mayes, Rebecca Strickland, Dillon Butchee and Darren Butchee.
