On Monday, January 9 the Leduc 4-H Beef Club held their monthly meeting and impromptu speech practice. The practice was in preparation for the public speaking competition on January 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Cloverlawn Community Hall located at Hwy 616 and Range Rd 233, east of Millet.

At the competition, 4-H members will give a prepared speech as well as an impromptu speech, where the contestant must give a speech for which they have only one minute to prepare.

Both speeches will be judged and winners will move to higher levels of competition. In addition to the speech practice, the 4-H members also discussed club topics such as the licorice fundraiser that the club is currently having, and the upcoming judging workshop when the 4-H members will be taught the fundamentals of judging certain items such as chickens and eggs, and then will have the opportunity to put what they learned into action by judging the items discussed.
