Oak Speech Team Program for 2020-21

Final competition for the Speech Team 2021

The final competition for the Speech Team took place Sunday, May 23rd.  It was quite different from other competitions in several ways.  First, the categories were all different and, with the exception of the debate category, meant to be fun.  Also there were no “winners”.  Every competitor who placed first in their round was rewarded. There were three rounds for each event including debate. It was enjoyable and students seemed to be happy with how the day went.  The following Oak students received a first place award for their presentations.

Our speech year ends with election of officers for the next school year.  This year was certainly a challenging situation, but things went very well.  We now look forward to the next school year with the hope that at some point we will be able to resume in-person practices, but knowing that we will do well no matter what lies ahead!  Thanks so much for your support and for the support of all of our parents.  We couldn’t be successful without all of you!
