National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

Sophie, 14, Oundle YFC, Northamptonshire

Shortlisted for New Member of the Year Award 2020

Since joining in the autumn of 2019 Sophie quickly became one of the club’s most active and committed members. Sophie has tried to involve herself in many aspects of YFC, especially competitions and weekly meetings. Her enthusiasm continued throughout lockdown, when Sophie took part in NFYFC’s Artwork Isolation Challenge and she was a regular participant in virtual club meetings.  

Sophie's willingness to get involved in all things YFC was exemplified by the assistance she gave to other team members to win the County and Area rounds of Junior Public Speaking. The Club and County hadn't taken part in this competition for many years, making it an even more impressive achievement for a new member.

To qualify for a national Public Speaking competition in your first year of membership is a huge achievement.  Sadly Sophie didn't get to compete in the national final due to Covid-19 restrictions but it’s certain she’s one to watch for the future.
