Annual Public Speaking Assembly 2018

Stepping up to the podium and presenting a speech publicly can be quite a daunting task, but these public speaking winners were specially chosen to do just that! After being chosen for the finals, this group of fourth through eleventh graders were personally selected out of the finalists to present a variety of speeches in front of their fellow peers. From Shakespeare to opinion pieces, to their very own “I Have a Dream” speech, all of these students presented their fully memorized speeches with confidence and grace.
