South O'Brien senior FFA member, Emily Chicoine, competed in the NE Sub-District FFA Public Speaking LDE (Leadership Development Event) on February 27 at Okoboji High School. Contestants write and deliver a six to eight minute speech about a current agricultural-related topic to a panel of judges. Emily's speech was titled "Moving Farming Indoors". She talked about the pros and cons of growing crops in large warehouses in urban areas. Emily placed 3rd, received a Silver rating at the Sub-district level and was the Alternate to Districts. "Overall, this event has helped me in speaking confidently in front of an audience," Emily commented.
