Speakers and demonstrators from Topley to Evelyn tested their skills at a 4-H gathering.
The kids got to choose their topics. From there, juniors age nine to 12 had three to five minutes to speak, while seniors 13 and up spoke for five to seven minutes.
Demonstration teams of two also chose their subjects, encouraged to have something to do with agriculture. One group chose the delicious idea to show how ice cream was made, but the winners demonstrated fermented food.
One of the tougher speech categories was impromptu for the seniors, where they had one minute to prepare and two minutes to speak.
