On April 4, area students competed in two separate county and district speech contests at Superior High School.
The competition was sponsored by Modern Woodmen of America.
There were speakers from Northwestern Elementary and Middle schools, Cathedral School, Superior Middle School and all Superior elementary schools. Throughout the United States, more than 100,000 students compete in this competition each year.
Prior to this, the students had already won first, second, or third place in their school contests. They researched, wrote and presented a speech on this year’s topic: “A Time When Volunteers Made a Difference.”
The first place winners were Morgan Hursh from Northwestern Elementary School and Hayley Olson from Great Lakes Elementary School. They will each receive a $50 cash award, a personal trophy, and a trophy for their schools. Second place winners were Jayden Sapik of Lake Superior Elementary School and Payton Schuster of Four Corners Elementary School. Third place speakers were Mackenzie Correll of Northwestern Elementary School and Isabelle Stuard of Superior Middle School.
These students are invited now to the Level Three Modern Woodmen Speech Contest at the Kickapoo Wildlife Reserve in Viola, Wis.
