    It is Unique.

    It is one of a kind. No other community in the United States is known by the name "ALVO". Early settlers had come to this area as early as 1869, they had established post-offices, school district and towns. The railroad was the main means of transportation , so towns were established along it's lines.

    Alvo reportedly received its name from the first child born after the community began to form around the depot. Her name was Alvo and she was the daughter of the railroad's master.

Public Speaking Contest

April 17, 2018

The Cass County Extension Office is hosting a Public Speaking Contest on April 17th, 2018 beginning at 6:30 pm. The office is located by the fairgrounds at 8400 144th Street, Suite 100, Weeping Water, NE 68463. This contest is open to students in the community, as well as Cass County 4-Hers. Public Speaking Contests are great for developing the life skill of communication, confidence and poise.

One of our 4-H leaders asked this question ... "What is the difference between the Cass County contest, and the 4-H Contest?" Here's a quick answer:

  • For the Cass County Public Speaking Contest, anyone can give a speech, including non 4-Hers. It can be on any topic; even recited poems and/or prose readings are acceptable. Ribbons are given, but contestants do not advance to the district level, it’s a county only contest. This opportunity provides a great practice and refining time for any public speaking event.
  • For the 4-H Public Speaking Contest, the student must be enrolled in 4-H. All speeches must be original and include 4-H as the major component of the speech. Winners advance on to the 4-H district level.

Pre-registration forms, contest guidelines, and speech writing helps are on the Nebraska Extension Cass County website . Pre-registration forms are due April 13th.

If you have any questions about the Cass County Public Speaking Contest, please call the extension office at 402-267-2205.
