Impromptu Public Speaking

The purpose of the Impromptu Public Speaking Career Development Event is to foster and develop the speaking abilities of FFA members as well as develop their self-confidence and contribute to their advancement in inter-personal skill attainment and leadership development.  The intention of the Impromptu Contest is to offer a more realistic, practical speaking contest to better prepare our students for public statements, media coverage, and general questions about the FFA and Agriculture Industry.  Students will develop the valuable speaking skills necessary to be professional, competent public representatives of the FFA Organization and Agriculture Industry.

The primary purpose of the event is to demonstrate the student’s ability with limited preparation time to compose and deliver coherent and focused oral presentations.

  1. Each section will determine how many chapter members may participate at the sectional level.  Each region will determine how many sectional participants may compete at the regional level.  Participation at the state level is limited to the top 50% of those that participate in the regional contest (or major portion thereof), with a maximum of four (4) per region.

  2. This contest will be open to students who are active members of chartered FFA chapters in good standing with the State Association and the National Organization in grade 10.

This contest is sponsored by Monica Bianchi as a special project of the California FFA Foundation.
