Nine Youth Leadership students came together on September 5, 2017, at Freeport High School to compete in the Florida Farm Bureau speech competition for Walton County. Three students from Freeport High School, South Walton High School and Walton High School each competed in the competition. The topic for this speech was "Today's food companies employ many tactics including food labels to gain a marketing edge. How can farmers and ranchers ensure that consumers understand these labels and have more confidence in the safety and quality of their food?"
First place went to Shelbee Castrillo of Walton High, second place went to Kayla “Cheyenne” Cordle of Walton High and third place went to Jenna Martin of Freeport High. Shelbee Castrillo will move on to the Regional Competition in Chipley, FL on September 14, 2017. Congratulations to these students and Good Luck to Shelbee at Regionals as she represents Walton County.

Thanks to the generosity of the Dugas Family Foundation, every child at Maude Saunders was allowed to select a book from the school’s Book Fair. The Foundation teamed up with the school and Scholastic to ensure that no child left the book fair empty-handed. The Dugas Family Foundation is committed to supporting literacy through their “All for Books” program. Submitted by Krisy Spence.
