The Monroe City FFA Chapter had nine students participate in the Area V Fall Public Speaking events. The competition was held virtually via Zoom. Their speeches were recorded live and sent to judges for further evaluation. There are different topic areas that students can choose from.  Participants were as follows: Logan Lucas-Missouri Institute of Cooperatives, Sierra Beaver-Young Farmer’s/Young Farm Wives, Anne Marie Quinn and Carly Knapp- Soil and Water, Emma Berry-MO Pet Breeders, Nora Gottman-Missouri Quarter Horse Association, Anna Barnes and Connor Pfaff-Teach Ag, and Max Lehenbauer-MO Sheep Producers. There were three participants from our Chapter that advanced to District Competition. Those results were Anna Barnes-First Place, Nora Gottman-Second Place, and Emma Berry-Second Place.
