On Saturday, March 10, 2018, the Valle Catholic Speech Team participated in a Bellarmine speech meet at St. Gertrude in Washington, MO. In speech meets, students in grades 5-8 develop and improve their public speaking skills by memorizing and performing material in Humorous, Serious, and Duet categories. Ribbons are awarded to participants based on the total score received from two judges.
Team members from left to right:
Humorous Duet: Ella Kraenzle and Kacy Fahnestock (5th grade): blue ribbon for “Stowaways” by Ken Bradbury
Humorous Solo: August Palmer (7th grade): gold ribbon for “David and Goliath” by Flip Wilson
Humorous Duet: Camryn Hobbs and Lucy Drury (5th grade): red ribbon for “Girl Behind the Wheel” by Ken Bradbury
A perfect score of 30 points earns a gold ribbon.
A score of 27-29 points earns a blue ribbon.
A score of 22-26 points earns a red ribbon.
Congratulations to all students on their excellent performances!
The team is coached by Sara Drost.
