Jackson Nesbit of the Sun Prairie FFA Chapter was selected as the state winner of the FFA Prepared Speaking Leadership Development Event (LDE) with his speech title: Eating Bugs. Nesbit’s advisors are Ms. Jenny Herman, Mr. Krist Kvalheim, and Mr. Josh Capodarco. The Prepared Speaking LDE was held at the 94th State Convention of the Wisconsin Association of FFA in Madison, Wisconsin.
In the Prepared Public Speaking LDE, students research a topic of interest and then put on a six to eight-minute creative and informative speech. The speech is then presented to a panel of judges who score the student based on the speech’s content, composition and delivery.
The other finalists were:
2nd Place: Madison Wiese, Wrightstown
3rd Place: Allison Loosen, Slinger
4th Place: Ella Woodoworth, Shullsburg
The State FFA Prepared Speaking LDE is sponsored at the state level by the Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative. The Prepared Speaking LDE is sponsored on the national level by Bayer.
Nesbit will represent Wisconsin at the 96th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana this November. The national winner will be selected from a group of state finalists and will receive a plaque and additional scholarship money.
