The Annual Justin-Siena Middle School Speech Contest is an exciting opportunity for interested middle-school students to practice their public speaking skills. Different middle schools from around the area are invited to participate in this event. For one evening, students recite a speech they have written based on a specific category to a panel of judges. The catagories can include dramatic interpretation, serious expository, humorous expository, and social justice. Afterwards, students are awarded first, second, or third place prizes based on how well they did. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to explore a skill they did not know they possessed and proves to be a valuable experience for all those who participate.
