February 5, 2018 – Sixteen Junior High/Middle School students from six different BCSD schools were invited to compete in the annual Henry Greve Speech Contest. The event took place February 1st in the Board Room at the Education Center of BCSD.
The topic for this year’s contest was “What are the Traits of a Successful Person?” Each student presented their original speeches and the four with the highest scores will represent the district at the county-level competition in March.
Krina Ghadia, 8th grade student from Cato Middle School, received the highest score of the day and was excited about competing in the county-level contest. When asked about the inspiration for her speech, she said, “I have always loved public speaking, ever since I was a young child. My mother has been an inspiration to me with her hard work and determination, and my father has always encouraged me to get my voice out there through public speaking.”
Congratulations to all the winners:
1st Place- Krina Ghadia, Cato Middle School
2nd Place- Erin Rowley, Chipman Junior High School
3rd Place- Chloe Garcia, Chipman Junior High School School
