A member of Bellville FFA recently placed among the top individuals in a statewide speaking competition.

Gabby Eskew finished fifth among 12 contestants in the State Prepared Speaking Competition, which tasked students with presenting a six to eight minute speech on a topic related to agriculture.  Eskew spoke on “Food Waste in the United States”.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s competition was held virtually.  Students sent in recorded speeches before answering questions via live videoconference.

Eskew is the third student from Bellville FFA to place in the top ten at the state speaking event, with Brenda Schumann taking the title at the National FFA Speaking Contest in 1996.

  1. It’s great to see young people working on extracurricular activities that enhance personal development. She should be commended for putting the time and energy into something that is not required and it is outstanding that she did so well. GREAT JOB GABBY!!!!
