The primary focus of the Florida State Youth For Christ Conference is to promote and foster fellowship, education, edification and recreation among Christian youth. The Bible Competitions segment of the youth conference is one of the major tools we use to accomplish this goal. Participation in these activities aid in the spiritual, intellectual, and emotional development of each young person involved.

Public speaking is one of the greatest fears among Americans.

Public speaking is a talent that will propel all professions and walks of life. Through participation in this event, students will learn to demonstrate the simple elegance of persuasive speech without the aid of modern technologies.
This competition offers youth an opportunity to use their talents, skills, and artistic abilities via art to communicate a biblical message related to the annual conference theme. All projects submitted must be strictly biblical in nature.

The youth are afforded a medium through which they can express what they have gained through study in an artistic way with a personality and flavor that only the youth can bring.
