This year the Speech & Poster Contest will be 100% Virtual. Where student must submit their entry online for judging.
The topic for both competitions is "HEALTHY FORESTS – HEALTHY COMMUNITIES?" and speeches are to be no more than 5-7 minutes. Independent research on the topic works to further educate students in conservation and natural resources, while public speaking provides a host of additional benefits. Artistic skills are called on for the poster contest, and all ages are encouraged to participate. Cash prizes for top winners.
We hope that you, a friend, a relative, or a student you know will consider entering in the 2021 annual Joe B. Forshee, Jr. Speech Contest and Poster Contest for Duval County.
UPDATE: Entry Deadline has been extended until May 3, 2021.
