For the second year in a row, Gracie Morbeck of Erskine Beef Club took home first-place honours at the regional 4-H public-speaking competition.

This year’s event was late last month at Sedgewick.

Morbeck was golden in the intermediate category, after winning as a junior last year.

Her winning speech was, “Laughter is the best medicine,” and the impromptu topic she chose was, “Has 4-H been more than you imagined?”

Two members from each region represented their region at the regionals, translating into 12 speakers in each division — junior, intermediate and senior.
