Abstract

The purpose of this research problem is to determine whether the experiences received through participation in State FFA Public Speaking contests have been beneficial to the contestants. The study is to reveal the relationship, if any, academically in high school and in leadership activities after leaving high school, between the contestants and their random selected classmates who did not participate in the speaking contests. An effort is also made to determine how the contestants were selected from the local chapters and the extent of preparation made by the contestants for the contests. The cultural, social, and economic benefits are evaluated by the contestants to illustrate the value, if any, received form this activity.
