8th Grade Speech Contest

Montana Paxton, Staff Writer

The end of the year is coming up fast for everyone! Before the school year ends, though, 8th graders can participate in a speech contest! The top three winners get cash prizes and 1st place also gets to recite their speech at 8th grade promotion. The contest will be held on April 24 in the library during your 1-3 periods. However, your English teacher has to submit your name to Mrs.Harris by April 19 if you want to participate in the contest. The topics that you can choose from are:

1) facing up to challenges and embracing opportunities

2) remember the past; embrace the future

3) the power of perseverance

4) dare to dream the impossible dream

5)small actions add up to significant changes.

Your speech will be judged on content, your voice inflection, eye contact, and preparation. Your speech must be 2-3 minutes long. If you are planning to participate in the speech contest, I wish you luck!
