Staffordshire YFC Public Speaking Day – Part 1!

On Sunday 29th November, Staffordshire YFC held the first set of competitions towards their popular Public Speaking Day Competitions.  Due to the ongoing pandemic, the team competitions – Junior Reading, Junior Speaking, Intermediate Brainstrust and Senior Debating have been postponed until 7th February 2021.  However, the Member of The Year (18 and Under/19 and Over) along side the Situations Vacant Competitions were held via zoom.  The two days of competitions are being kindly sponsored by B and B Tractors, supporting YFC members to build confidence, team work and public speaking skills which will be invaluable later in life.
