Creston 4-H member places second in senior category of regional speech competition

Web Lead

Creston hosted the 4-H regional speech competition on March 2 at the Creston Baptist Church, which generously allowed the use of its hall as a venue.

Juniors Colby Holt (first, Cranbrook), Madison Adams (second, Cranbrook) and Taylor Tracey (third, Cranbrook), and seniors Rachel Hawke (first, Cranbrook), Ada Brown (second, Creston) and Jordan Thielen (third, Cranbrook) won the contest. These six members will be advancing to the provincial competition.

All of the participants spoke well on a great variety of topics, in a very close competition, which the Cranbrook district club members attended over very snowy roads.

Judges Shirley Conrad, Erin Harris, Heather Patenaude, Lorraine Doeleman, Tara Mehrer and Nadine Ben-Rabha generously offered up their time, and without them, speech day would not have been possible.
