Speech Trek is Coming in February

Speech Trek is Coming in February By Ann Arneill

Get out your calendars and schedule Feb. 19, 2022 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. to attend the Speech Trek Contest to be held via Zoom.  Eventbrite registration will be posted soon. The Zoom link will be sent out to registered attendees closer to the contest date.

Students from the Elk Grove Unified High School District will be participating in our public speaking contest.  The topic this year is “Has the US lived up to its pledge of liberty and justice for all? Would requiring the study of diversity, equity, and inclusion in a high school setting help ensure liberty and justice for all?”

We hope to see you there!

You can stimulate your interest in the contest by participating in our Speech Trek Challenge on Jan. 15, 2022 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. via Zoom. Register on Eventbrite here to receive the Zoom link for this event.

At the Challenge, members will be discussing their ideas about this important topic. The Speech Trek Committee will provide some background information, and then participants will break up into groups to discuss the topic.  The gathering will end with breakout groups briefly summarizing their discussions for the group. We hope you will be interested in previewing this topic with us.
