This year’s Alabama Youth Speakers Tournament and Bible Drill competitions were interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Youth Speakers Tournament was adapted to a virtual competition held in May.
The winners of the 2020 Youth Speakers Tournament competition are:
- First place: Hope Bone, Oakley Baptist Church, New Market (Madison Baptist Association)
- Second place: Anna Hagel, Thelma Baptist Church, Wetumpka (Elmore Baptist Association)
The Youth Speakers Tournament is a ministry for youth in grades 10-12 in which students present an original speech on a topic from a list provided for that year’s competition.
Bible Drill is a competition for children and youth that involves Scripture memorization, application and location identification (finding Scripture passages in the Bible). Due to social distancing requirements, the Alabama state Bible Drill was canceled this year.
