FIFTY-FOUR YFCU members recently took part in the Association’s annual demonstration/presentation competition at CAFRE, Greenmount Campus.
The competition provides members with the opportunity to employ a combination of different skills that they use in other YFCU contests including prepared and impromptu public speaking. It then incorporates these with the use of practical aids and presentation equipment which then serves to enable members to further develop their communication and presentation skills.
Competitors were given a maximum of 10 minutes to speak about or demonstrate a topic of their choices. Some examples on the night were dog grooming, clay pigeon shooting, karate, Irish dancing and wheaten bread making.
At the event, judges Trevor Woods, Jane McCollam, Stephanie Fulton, Maura Ellis, Rosalind Ellis and Karena Shaw had a diverse range of presentations to judge.
After careful deliberation, the judges made their decision and the results were as follows:
1st Philip Beattie, Finvoy YFC
