FB Women's Speech Contest

Justin Rast Wins Annual Speech Contest
Boise--Justin Rast of Filer High School won the State Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Committee Speech contest Monday morning in Boise.

Rast effectively focused on telling the Idaho Ag story from the perspective of commodity production."I used the the theme using 'the Voice of Idaho agriculture', I visualized listening to the voices of agriculture from the barnyard to the fields, giving a voice to animals and commodities and letting them tell the story," said Rast. He thought that giving a speech and spewing out statitistics was boring, thats when he came up with the idea of letting the commodities tell their own story in the form of his speech, the result was a creative and facinating fresh take on Idaho Agriculture.

Rast ended his speech with this gem: "Success (in agriculture) is a journey not a destination. The doing is usually more important than the outcome."
