The competition sought to find the best prepared and impromptu public speakers in Northern Ireland and the judges had a difficult time discerning the winners in each of the classes. In the prepared section, competitors delivered a speech, chosen from a specified list of topics including ‘The Future of the Family Farm’, ‘Social Media’s role in agriculture’, ‘My Hero’, ‘Members Success’, ‘Everyone has the right to Education’, ‘The YFCU 88 years on’, ‘If I was First Minister’, ‘The Importance of Public Transportation’ and ‘Inspired Renewables’.
