Lincoln Farm Bureau Outstanding Youth, Variety contest winners named

On Monday, Sept. 19, the Lincoln County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee named the latest winners in its annual Outstanding Youth and Variety Contest.
The purpose of the Outstanding Farm Bureau Youth contest is to promote youth involvement in county Farm Bureau activities and to recognize leadership, achievements and awards in their schools and community.
Each contestant in the outstanding youth competition has a seven minute interview about school activities, special interests, and career goals. They then give a two-minute speech on a topic relating to Farm Bureau or agriculture. 
Reed Campbell won the competition in the male division with J.D. Noe named as runner up. In the female division, Taylor Wesley came away with the win with Taylor-Grace Mingo as the runner-up.
Mingo was the top winniner in the variety contest, capturing first place with a piano solo.
The winners now advance to the district competition, which will be held on Monday, Oct. 17 at Rockcastle County High School.
