2022 Stand & Delivers

The purpose of Stand and Deliver is to teach students how to enjoy the process of preparing to give his/her best at a speech contest.


If you are ready to learn the speaking strategies and advice used by Professional Speakers, state winning speakers, State FFA Officers and even National FFA Officers, Stand and Deliver is for you. Stand and Deliver started in 2000 and has sharpened the presentation skills of almost 10,000 Oklahoma FFA members.


Former Oklahoma FFA State Presidents and Professional Speakers, Rhett Laubach and Kelly Barnes, are ready once more to give you everything they know on how to be your best at Extemporaneous, Prepared and Creed CDEs. The Stand and Deliver conferences will push the veterans and get the beginning speakers up to speed.
