CALIFORNIA, RCD of Tehama County – Calling all high school students, the Resource Conservation District of Tehama County seeks Tehama County high school students to join the annual Speak-Off Contest, which offers cash prizes for first, second and third place.
The district is one of nearly 100 Resource Conservation Districts all over California. The contest is created by the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts to spark interest in districts’ work throughout the state. With a different topic each year, the statewide contest remains relevant and engaging for both the student speaker and audience.
This year’s speech topic question is, “Why do we need to act to save the monarch butterfly? What can RCDs do to help?” Students prepare a 3- to 5-minute speech in response to the two questions and present it to a Red Bluff audience on Thursday, Oct. 3.
