Our Spring Conference on April 27-29 2018 was filled with fantastic speech competitions. On Friday night we had the Evaluation chaired by Clinton Springer and on Sunday morning we had the International Speech Contest chaired by Jose Alejandro Vivar (2017 District International Speech Winner). The competition was fierce and every competitor did an amazing job. The room was filled to capacity for each contest and the energy in the room was infectious.
A big thank you goes to the Contestant Chair Nancy Parkhill, the Judges Chair Dragana Vulpic-Bork, and our Chief Judge Deborah McGrath for coordinating the contestants, judges, and all the volunteers. A big thank you also goes to all the ballot counters, timers, judges, and SAAs who helped.
The winners of the contests were:
1st: Ross Cunningham, Division S | 2nd: Roger Caesar, Division B | 3rd: Greg Lewis, Division L
1st: Roger Caesar, Division B | 2nd: Jonathan Richardson, Division M | 3rd: Ross Cunningham, Division S
