Each year the Duval County Soil and Water Conservation District hosts a speech contest for area 6th-12th graders. The winner of the Duval County contest receives a cash prize, plus gets an invite to compete regionally, statewide, and one lucky Florida student will represent the state in the national competition.
This year the topic is "Why do we all need Trees?" and speeches are to be no more than 6-8 minutes long. Independent research on this topic works to further educate students in conservation and natural resources, while public speaking provides a host of additional benefits.
We hope that you, a friend, a relative or a student you know will consider entering in the 2016 Annual Joe B. Forshee, Jr. Speech Contest for Duval County. Entry Deadline: March 30, 2016.
