Free Enterprise Speech Contest

Free enterprise. What does it mean to you? Your answer can be quite rewarding if you are a Texas high school student.

The Free Enterprise Speech Contest is held annually and is open to any young Texas Farm Bureau member who has attended the organization’s Youth Leadership Conference.

Through the competition, students are asked to share what they learned at the conference about constitutional government and the free enterprise system with their friends, family and community.

It’s an opportunity to earn cash for college. Gain valuable communication skills. And hone leadership abilities. The rewards are rich for those willing to work hard.
