2024 Cal Youth Expo Speaking Contest.

Students research a topic of interest and then put together a creative, 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.

In helping prepare young people for the agriculture industry, CYAE will offer two speaking events for FFA, 4-H, Grange, and Independent members. Students will be competing not only for top honors but for a scholarship as well. The competition will be held in Extemporaneous Public Speaking and Prepared Public Speaking.
