A Louth Young Farmer is on her way to the nationals after securing a win at county level in the Junior Member of the Year speaking competition.

Laura Wrisdale, 16, from Ludborough near Louth, attends King Edward VI Grammar School and enjoyed success in Skegness recently during the county round of the Young Farmers Junior Member of the Year speaking competition.

Going up against a substantial number of Young Farmers from Lincolnshire, Debyshire and Leceistershire, Laura was critiqued by two judges after presenting a CV, personal statement and powerpoint presentation in a job interview style scenario which helps the juniors to prepare for their future.

A delighted Laura told the Leader: “I was really overjoyed to win at the county competition in Skegness.

“It has been a really good experience for me and it was great to be put in front of a real life situation with a panel who gave feedback.

“It helps with future development when looking for employment and it was a really happy moment.”

Laura will now take part in the national competition which takes place at Staffordshire County Showground on July 4.

If you would like to take part in Louth Young Farmers, the group meet every Tuesday evening from 7.30pm at The Boars Head in Louth. You don’t have to be a farmer to be a Young Farmer.
