On Saturday, April 18th Senior Molly Eldevik won first place in the State Speech Competition and Parker Breza finished in 5th place. The competition was held for the finalists of the section tournament that were held on March 18th. Eldevik participated in the category of Great Speeches and Parker Breza participated in the category of Extemporaneous Speaking. “After getting into finals at state last year, I set my sights higher this year but honestly did not expect to make it as far as I did. I was honored to even participate at state and especially to make it to the final round, but when they announced my name as state champion I was in disbelief. It was the absolute best way to top off my senior year speech season,” said Eldevik.
