Woodfin Wins District Farm Bureau Speech Contest, Headed To State

September 30, 2014

Allison Woodfin of Molino won the 2014 District Farm Bureau Speech Contest recently in Crestview. She advanced to the state competition at the Florida Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in Ponte Vedra Beach in October.

Students age 14-18 were invited to participate beginning at the county level  by delivering a five minute speech on the topic ““Food security is an important issue to the people of the United States. How can Florida Agriculture continue to provide quality solutions for the future?”

In her speech, Woodfin said, ““Florida’s government at the state and local levels must support farmers and ranchers throughout the state to insure that Floridians have access to sufficient quantities of affordable, nutritious food.”

Woodfin is a member of the Barrineau Park 4-H Club and is a student at West Florida High School.
