On March 3rd, thirteen members of the Trinity middle school speech team competed at the annual speech tournament hosted by Valley Catholic school. This event gathered over 400 middle school contestants from around the Portland/Vancouver region. The students have 3 rounds in which they compete: Round 1: elocution (a memorized, prepared speech), Round 2: extemporaneous (reading a selection of literature out loud with only a few minutes to prepare), and Round 3: impromptu (writing and presenting a speech on a topic with only 10 minutes to prepare). We are proud of all our participants who spent hours preparing, memorizing and perfecting their skills in these areas. The team brought home 6 trophies in recognition of the excellence in which they performed. It was a grand day for Trinity Academy!
