McCLAVE, Colo. — On Tuesday, Dec. 8, McClave FFA members Dillon Roesch, Jeanette Steerman, and Tatum Chase competed in the FFA District Speaking LDE’s. Dillon Roesch and Tatum Chase competed in prepared speaking and Jeanette Steerman competed in extemporaneous speaking. Members who competed in the prepared speaking event used a manuscript they developed to create a six to eight minute speech.
After the speech they entertained questions from the judges. The extemporaneous event requires the members to draw a current agricultural topic and they are then given 30 minutes to prepare a four to six minute speech regarding this topic. They also entertain a series of questions from the judges. Tatum Chase earned a silver ranking and Dillon Roesch was the prepared speaking winner. Jeanette Steerman also earned the distinction of being the extemporaneous speaking winner. Dillon and Jeanette will both be speaking at the state event held at the FFA State Convention in June.
