              Ten 4-H’ers from Dawson County were among 60 contestants who competed in the 2018 West Central Regional 4-H Public Speaking Contest held Saturday, April 28, in North Platte, according to Andrea Nisley, UNL Extension Educator.

              In the Junior division (10 years of age and younger), Intermediate Division (11 to 13 years of age), and Senior Division (14 to 18 years of age), speakers were required to prepare an original speech on an aspect relating to their 4-H experience. In the Junior, Intermediate and Senior Radio Public Service Announcement (PSA) divisions, 4-H’ers were required to write a 60-second radio spot promoting 4-H. 4-H’ers who competed in the Radio PSA division could also compete in the speech divisions.

The contest is sponsored by the Nebraska Rural Radio Network.
