Dover Students Place at Northwest District AFR Speech Contest
Two Dover students placed in their category at the American Farmers & Ranchers (AFR) Northwest District Speech Contest held in Enid, Nov. 21. Katlyn Harviston placed first in Junior Science and Cody Barker placed third in the same category.
This marks the 75th year of the contest. The event has gone through many changes over the years, but has always maintained its central agricultural theme. Varying by grade level, this year’s speech categories are AFR/ OFU, Ag Advocacy and Policy, Agribusiness, Natural Resources, and Science. All students, grades fourth through 12th, are eligible to compete.
Nearly 500 students will compete in AFR District Speech Contests, resulting in more than 160 finalists advancing to the state contest held Dec. 7 at Oklahoma State University (OSU) in Stillwater.
