Speech is a competitive extra curricular activity that students participate in. They do all kinds of categories like extemporaneous reading, humorous interpretation, duo interpretation and discussion. The category is chosen based on what the student is comfortable doing. The students practice after school two times per week. The tournaments consist of competitions of 6-8 students in each room. The judge chooses the best speaker in their room. Students compete three times in a day. The best ones advance to a final round and earn ribbons and trophies! So feel free to join if you want to be a better speaker, or if you like to win trophies.
