Speech Team

Speech Team cultivates students’ public speaking skills and gives them the opportunity to perform in front of an audience at the West 40 Speech & Drama Festival. This area-wide festival includes 10 different categories, including serious, humorous, dramatic, choral, duet, and monologue presentations. Teachers and coaches select the material that participants perform. Participants are selected by auditions, which are held at District 97 middle schools during November or December.
