Stettler District 4-H speakers and presenters pose for a group shot.

Erskine tops the list with four headed to regionals in Stettler District 4-H event

Stettler District 4-H speakers delivered some impressive speeches and presentations, with Erskine sending four representatives to regionals.

This past Wednesday, March 8 some of the top speakers and presenters from the various 4-H clubs of Stettler gathered together at the Stettler Elementary School to deliver their best speeches and presentations.

The speeches were categorized by age groups with juniors being from nine to 11, intermediate from 12-14 and seniors, 15 and above.

The first and second place in each group moved on to the regional public speaking event to be hosted in Hanna on Sunday, March 26. The results were as follows.

In the juniors, Levi Martin from Big Valley placed first, followed by Aryann Haustein of Erskine. In the intermediates, Chance Morbeck of Erskine took first place, followed by Kayla Robertson of Erskine. In the seniors, Rachel Morbeck of Erskine placed first, followed by Abby Musgrove of Byemoor.

“The 4-H public speaking is one of the most beneficial elements to the program,” said Paula Martin, Big Valley Club representative for the 2017 speeches and main organizer for this year. “As the members carry on in life public speaking can help them in multiple ways, whether it be in education or in their careers or just in simple day-to-day interaction with people.”

Martin said that the Stettler District 4-H would like to thank all the volunteer judges for presentations and speeches.

“Without the help of so many dedicated people this important event would not be possible,” Martin added. “We would also like to thank our sponsors Alta Link and UFA for supporting us.”
