Outstanding Youth and Variety Contest

 

On September 19th the Lincoln County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee hosted the annual Outstanding Youth and Variety Contest. The purpose of the Outstanding Farm Bureau Youth contest is to promote youth involvement in county Farm Bureau activities and to recognize leadership, achievements, and awards in their schools and community.  Each contestant in the outstanding youth has a seven minute interview about school activities, special interests, and career goals. They then give a two minute speech on a topic relating to Farm Bureau or agriculture. Reed Campbell won the competition with J.D. Noe as runner up in the male competition. The female winner was Taylor Wesley with Taylor-Grace Mingo as the runner up. Taylor-Grace Mingo won the variety contest by playing a piano selection. The winners will go to the district competition on October 17 at Rockcastle County High School.
