On Tuesday, Oct. 3, the Madison County Farm Bureau office hosted the 2017 Florida Farm Bureau District 2 Youth Speech Contest. These young students did an excellent job and were encouraged to keep striving and reaching for the top.
The topic of the speeches was “Today's food companies employ many tactics including food labels to gain a marketing edge. How can farmers and ranchers ensure that consumers understand these labels and have confidence in the safety and quality of their food?"
All speeches were well researched and presented in a well-defined manner. Ainsley Peterson, of Lafayette County, walked away with the first place title and will move forward and compete in the state competition.
