Individual Speech Conference Speech

posted Feb 23, 2016, 12:25 PM by Ken Kasper
Hello Alburnett! Mrs. Kibbie here. I wanted to report out our fantastic results from last night's Individual Speech Conference Contest at Central City.

We have 12 students on our individual speech team, and we competed in 15 total events. We received 13 "ones" (the top rating) and two "twos" (on a scale of 1-4). 

We finished 7th out of 14 schools, claiming victory over Lisbon 9th, Cedar Valley Christian (all age level teams), Midland and East Buch. 

Most importantly, we had a fantastic showing when judges voted for their "Best of Center." Each judge picked the top three performers they saw that night, and Alburnett was very strongly represented. Each judge saw over 25 performances last night and we appeared several times in the top three!

Harper Eastman won third place Best of Center for her Radio News.
Spencer Dove took second place BOC for his After Dinner Speech.
Dakota Trenkamp took third place BOC for his Interpretation of Poetry.
Amanda Jensen took third place BOC for her Literary Program.
And Jailyn Seabrooks swept her categories, earning FIRST PLACE Best of Center in Literary Program, and 2nd place BOC in Storytelling!

Congratulations to all the performers:
