I’ll be heading to Alabama soon to compete in the National Speech & Debate tournament again this year. I am so excited! Here’s an article that ran in Pine Views last year that I never posted. It gives you some additional information on the tournament. Wish me luck!
I was part of the group that represented Pine View at the state speech and debate tournament. We did the piece Inside Out. I played Joy. I had an amazing time and couldn’t have asked for a better team. We put so much work and passion into our performance, it was bittersweet to take second place. We’ll be back next year!
I recently attended my second speech and debate tournament in Palm Harbor. This time I was way less nervous; however, I was still shocked when they called my name for first place!
UPDATE: June 2016 – I finished my first year of speech and debate in humorous interpretation with two first-place wins and three second-place wins. And, I qualified to go to nationals in Salt Lake City, which was an amazing experience.
