Williams High junior wins speaking competition
Allison Ward, a junior at Williams High School, took first place in a public speaking competition sponsored by the Colusa County Resource Conservation District on Oct. 2 at the Colusa Industrial Park. Ashleigh Ehrke and Jessica Croxson of Pierce High School received second and third place, respectively.
The theme was "How will the development of alternative energy impact natural resources?" Judges included district Director Beth Nall, district staffer Mary Fahey, and public speaker Doug Turner.
Five students from two Colusa County high schools competed for a chance at cash and advancing to the regional contest. Ward will compete on Oct. 25 at the regional contest in Orland. If she wins there, she will advance to the state competition held in November in Napa.
