The Inyo County Speech Contest has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 15, at the Jill Kinmont Boothe School in Bishop at 5 pm. The topic for this year’s contest is: “What makes a good community?”
In conjunction with Bishop Real Estate, Inyo County Office of Education sponsors this contest for students in grades 5-8. The goal is to cultivate effective public speaking skills, create confidence and an earned sense of achievement and leadership. Each year organizers offer insightful topics that make for an exciting and thoughtful experience for all involved.
Students from all school districts in Inyo County are eligible to participate in the competition. Each school holds their own speech contest where winning students are selected to compete in the Inyo County Speech Contest.
Trophies and monetary scholarships will be awarded to the first-, second-, and third-place winners, courtesy of Bishop Real Estate.
A panel of judges will critique the speakers and judge them on the basis of content, effectiveness, delivery, poise, presentation, and audience appeal.
The public is encouraged to attend the Inyo County Speech Contest.
