Jackson County’s 4-H/Tropicana Public Speaking Contest was held on May 6, 2014. We had a lot of very talented young speakers this year with a wide variety of well-chosen topics. The County contestants made their way through winning their class competition, and progressed on to competing at the school level. The best of the best were chosen to compete at the County level.
