We are excited to again host the annual Speech and Poster Contest! This local contest allows students to compete in the state, and even national contest under the same topic. The winners of the Duval County Speech Contest receives a cash prize, plus one student will get an invite to compete regionally and statewide for grades 6-12th.
The poster contest is an additional way to compete in the competition for grades K-12. The topic for both competitions is "Where Would We BEE Without Pollinators?" and speeches are to be no more than 5-7 minutes. Independent research on the topic works to further educate students in conservation and natural resources, while public speaking provides a host of additional benefits. Artistic skills are called on for the poster contest, and all ages are encouraged to participate. Cash prizes for top winners.
We hope that you, a friend, a relative, or a student you know will consider entering in the 2020 annual Joe B. Forshee, Jr. Speech Contest and Poster Contest for Duval County.
Entry Deadline: February 19, 2020.
All details and forms to complete will be posted to this event in the coming weeks. More details are available at www.tinyurl.com/duvalsoilandwater.
