Excerpt from The Chronicle via Yahoo!:

[Mother’s Day] weekend, the Washington Future Farmers of America (FFA) Association held its 93rd convention and expo at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick to hand out accolades to FFA members from chapters throughout the state and choose state representatives.


Ileana Wall of the Yelm FFA chapter was awarded the 2023 state championship for extemporaneous speaker for demonstrating her ability to deliver impromptu public speeches. Yelm FFA chapter adviser Nik Grimm said contestants vying to win extemporaneous speaker do not get their speech topic prompts until 30 minutes before they present.


The FFA is a nonprofit youth organization focused on preparing its members for leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. For more information, visit https://washingtonffa.org/.
