Speech Team

Members of the Speech Team compete individually and collectively in one or more dramatic, interpretive or public address events at invitational, conference, and IHSA events. Tryouts are held in October and are open to all students. The season ends with the state speech contest in February. In the past, the Speech Team has won first-place awards in both regional and sectional competition, finished third in the state, and has produced numerous state champions and three national finalists.
