Working for weeks, students prepared speeches and practiced their events for the speech and debate tournament held at Bak on March 14.

“After my speech is written, I practice,” Annabella Saccaro, eighth grade communications major, said. “I read over my speech and say each sentence multiple times until I know I have it down.”

Many students enjoyed competing because “it is a free place to say what is on my mind, and I enjoy the thrilling feeling and reward of competing for places,” Giada Robinson, sixth grade communications major, said.

Students competed with private and public schools around Palm Beach County and placed first through sixth place.

In Original Oratory, Saccaro placed first, Colom and Sophia Roud, eighth grade communications major, tied for second. In Declamation, Sofia Hennessy-Correa, sixth grade communications major, placed second. In House A Congress, Sheevam Patel, eighth grade communications major, placed second. In House B, Miles Wang, eighth grade communications major, placed second. In House C, Sasha DiMare, sixth grade communications major, placed second. In Impromptu, Sandra Nemes, seventh grade communications major, placed first.

“I feel proud to be a part of this team. You take away skills to use for the rest of your life,” Saccaro said. “It is truly a one of a kind experience that I would not trade anything for.”
