The poster contest is an additional way to compete in the competition for grades K-12. The topic for both competitions is "Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper" 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 2019 annual
Joe B. Forshee, Jr. Speech Contest and Poster Contest for Duval County.
