Bradford FFA to compete at state

BRADFORD— In the FFA, members are given the opportunity to compete in a wide range of contests called Career Development Events. One of those events is public speaking, which has different levels within it. Freshmen can compete in a level of public speaking called Creed Speaking. Members must memorize the entire five paragraphs of the FFA Creed, complete with hand motions, attention to speaking tone, movement, and many other elements of giving a good speech. They are then asked a few questions by the judges and scored throughout the entire time.

Bradford-UVCC FFA had two competitors in the sub-district creed speaking contest on Feb. 1 at the Upper Valley Career Center. Megan Wood placed 2nd at sub-districts and Avery Helman placed third. Only the top two moved on which left Wood to move onto districts to represent Bradford. On Feb. 16, at Coldwater high school, Wood placed first among the 10 contestants in District 9, and will move forward to the state competition on March 4. She is among the top 20 creed speakers in the state of Ohio who will all be competing for the number one spot.
