Iowa High School Speech Assoc.      

I always love watching how the acts come together.  The students work hard to get where they want to be for performance and it shows on competition day. Speech is a life long skill the students will continue to utilize as they transition into adulthood -whether it's preparing them for an interview, leading a company, or trying to persuade a group about a project. They have no idea where these skills could come into play for them. - Mrs. Hakeman 



I have been in speech all four years of high school and have enjoyed every single second of it. Through speech I have become a better public speaker and team player, and no matter what category I competed in there was always something I could learn from that experience. Speech has allowed me to use more out of the box thinking and has helped me to become a more independent and reliable individual.
