Poloronis 4-H’s top public speaker

An Apalachicola Bay Charter School fourth grader has won the district 4-H public speaking competition in Wakulla County, the first time a Franklin County student has won at the district level.

Kami Poloronis, who lives in Eastpoint, was the judges’ choice out of all the fourth and fifth graders from six neighboring counties with her speech on”Making the World a Better Place.”

Poloronis has earlier won both the school and Franklin County competition.

On May 4 she competed against county winners from Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, Gadsden, Gulf and Liberty counties.

Poloronis swept the competition and went home with a certificate of achievement and a $300 prize.
