2016 Jackson County Youth and Variety Contest

 

Jackson County Farm Bureau took part in the KFB Outstanding Youth and Variety contest for District 8 on Monday, October 17 at the Rockcastle County High School.

The Outstanding Youth contest includes a personal interview and the student must give a 2 minute speech on agriculture or Kentucky Farm Bureau. The Variety Contest is any type of entertainment such as singing, dancing, musical instruments or drama. The students are judged by three people with backgrounds in youth work and/or agriculture. Winners will participate in the state contest in Louisville during KFB’s Annual Meeting in December.

Jackson County Farm Bureau would like to congratulate these young men for their participation and the wonderful job they did.
