On Friday, Feb. 15, the Lower North Thompson 4-H club held its speech contest.
There were lots of amazing speeches, with topics ranging from the Vancouver Canucks to horseback riding.
The only problem is that there could only be one winner in each category, which would allow two members to advance to the 4-H District Speech Contest in March.
The senior who was sent on to represent our club at districts was Rebecca Cooke, while the junior representative was Clair Horsch. Rebecca’s speech was It Makes Sense To Protect Your Brain When Horseback Riding, while Clair’s speech was A Year On The Ranch.
At districts in Kamloops on March 3, Rebecca finished second in the senior category and Clair wound up fourth in the junior category.
As a result, Rebecca will represent the Lower North Thompson 4-H Club at the regional competition on May 27.
