During this competition, members are asked to compete in contests such as Public Speaking events (Junior Public, Senior Public, Natural Resources, Cooperatives, and Extemporaneous), Creed Speaking, Ag Demonstration, Job Interview, and Parliamentary Procedure (Senior and Junior).
The Heartland members were involved in all but Ag Demonstration and Parliamentary Procedure.
Students did very well for their first time competing in these events, as all but three were freshmen.
Lane Huebert and Austin Stuhr competed in Extemporaneous Speaking. They were asked to draw a topic, and were given 30 minutes to write a 4 minute speech.
Paige Mestl and Lydia Quiring competed in Job Interview. They were not able to see how well they competed the day of the contest.
Karah Joyner (wrote about how the creed influences her) and Kyra Dick (spoke about why we need to give speeches) competed in Junior Public Speaking. They, like Job Interview, were not able to see how they competed the day of the contest.
Cheyenne Hiebner (spoke about the Dust Bowl) and Devon Stamp (spoke about Dogs) in the Natural Resource competition.
Connor Boehr and Taylor Quiring gave Cooperative speeches. Taylor received second place, which qualifies her for state.
Bailey Peters and Krynn Arbuck did the Creed contest.
