Arbuckle Students Address Conservation at Speech Competition

2015 RCD Speak-off-4

Public speaking can be a terrifying thing – in fact, its the most feared task by many. However, three brave Arbuckle FFA students participated in the Colusa County Resource Conservation District’s (CCRCD) Speaking Competition on Wednesday, October 7, 2015.

The topic, “How can RCD’s become more involved with conservation education?”, was intriguing to the judging panel as many of them are CCRCD board members.

“We gained some great ideas from the students, some we may even implement,” said Patti Turner, CCRCD District Manager.

Each of the three students delivered their speeches between three to five minutes and could not include props, costumes or visual aids.

“As always I am impressed by the quality of this year’s speeches,” said Turner, “The students were well prepared and did their homework.”

In their speeches, the students recommend that RCD’s build informative websites, actively participate in social networking, and following trends. One speaker recommended that RCD’s not only focus their attention on young adults but to the entire community.

Judges for the event included CCRCD Directors Beth Nall, Jay Dee Garr, and Kim Gallagher. Bob Alvernaz served as the official timekeeper.

First place was awarded to Sara Marsh with a $50 cash prize. Second place was awarded to Jessica Croxson with a $30 cash prize, and third place was awarded to Kelsey Burgess with a $20 cash prize.

Sara Marsh will advance to the Regional RCD completion to be held in Butte County on October 20th where she can have a chance to win $100.

Resource Conservation Districts were formed in the 1930’s after the Dustbowl to provide resources for the proper management and conservation practices that will improve the health of Colusa County Watersheds. RCD priorities include identifying natural resource issues and concerns, reduce erosion and sedimentation, promote flood control management, protect agricultural validity, and promote conservation education.
