Marsh Takes First at Regional RCD Speaking Contest : Advances to State

Picture1Pierce High School senior, Sara Marsh is working her way to be crowned the State RCD Speaking Champion; a title that was was almost earned last year.

“Sarah is extra determined to take first place this year after coming so close last year with a second place finish at the State Contest in Ventura,” said Patti Turner, Executive Director of the Colusa County RCD, “she is an excellent and well-polished speaker that will represent Colusa County and the Sacramento Valley Region at a very high level.”

Marsh recently competed in the Sacramento Valley Region RCD Speaking Competition and received first place honors; thus allowing her to compete in the State Speaking Competition on November 19, in Yosemite.

“Sarah will be hard to beat with her inspiring speech that gives RCDs timely and innovative ideas to deliver conservation education,” said Turner.

The 2015 theme for the RCD Speaking Competition is “How can Resource Conservation Districts (RCD) become more involved with conservation education?”

Marsh is a member of the Arbuckle FFA and student of Ag Advisor George Green.

Now advancing to the State RCD Speaking Competition, Marsh will once again give her speech on November 19th in Yosemite.

The Sacramento Valley Region includes Tehama County, Butte County, Glenn County, Colusa County, East Lake County, Yuba County, Sutter County, Yolo County as well as portions of Shasta, Lake, Modoc and Plumas counties. ◄
