We are so excited to have a record breaking year in the number of entrants (10) for our speech contest!  To accommodate this number, we are asking members and guests to arrive by 6:50 a.m.  The bell will ring at 7:00 a.m. sharp and the contest will begin at 7:15 a.m.  We may have to end a few minutes late so please be sure to consider this with your schedule planning.  If you absolutely must leave early, please leave in between speakers.

Please note that rules prohibit us from addressing the contestants and their parents by name until after the results are announced.  The contestants are supposed to sit together away from their parents and school officials.  Also, rules require us to hold our applause until after the last speech.

This is one of our most exciting meetings of the year to see our local students shine!   Education dignitaries have been invited as our guests.  Let's pack the room and support our contestants!
