Every now and then something that touches your heart happens. This week it was a young lady called Grace Mahon who is in Year 5 at Jamberoo Public School.
Grace entered the prestigious LandLearn NSW public speaking competition at the end of last year and she has been selected as a finalist to compete at the Dubbo Beef Spectacular on March 15.
Grace’s first round speech that caught the judges’ ear was entitled “The Environment is What we Eat. I don’t know Grace but her mother Ros tells me she wanted to focus on something local and did a little bit of internet research and found our farm.
For the finals her topic is ‘Australian vs. Foreign produce. How can we win”. Winners, runners-up and a rising star will win cash prizes and the overall winner of the day will be invited to deliver their speech at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
With Grace’s permission I have used my favourite pictures of Clover Hill to turn her speech into a video which you can watch here
Thank you Grace we feel truly honoured and we are very confident you will give the other finalists a strong run for their money in Dubbo next month
