r Winners of the National FFA Prepared Public Speaking Leadership Development Event (LDE) were announced Friday, October 26, at the seventh session of the National FFA Convention & Expo. Jaynee Giffing, a member of the Springville High School FFA, placed fourth in the event.

The event was held in conjunction with the 91st National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis. The top four individuals received cash awards, sponsored by Monsanto, to recognize their success in the event.

Giffing is the daughter of Rob and Monica Giffing of Spring Lake. She is a senior at Springville High School.

The prepared public speaking LDE is designed to recognize outstanding FFA members for their ability to prepare and present a factual speech on a specific agricultural issue in a well thought-out and logical manner in a competitive setting. Members prepare and deliver a six to eight minute speech from memory and respond to five minutes of questions. The event is just one way FFA members can develop their ability to communicate in a powerful, organized and professional manner.

The event, held at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown and the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, is one of many educational activities at the National FFA Convention & Expo in which FFA members practice the lessons learned in agricultural education classes.
