Speech Trek Contest coming up in February

Speech Trek Contest coming up in February By Ann Arneill

The 15th Annual Speech Trek contest will be held on Feb. 19, 2022 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. via Zoom.  The link will be sent a few days before the event to those who have registered through EventBrite.  You can still register to attend by going to this link. (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/aauw-sacramento-speech-trek-tickets-246451943397 ).

Students from the Elk Grove Unified High School District will participate.  The topic this year: “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?”  Students will deliver 5- to 6-minute speeches for cash prizes.  We hope to see you there!

The Speech Trek Committee just hosted the Speech Trek Challenge where AAUW members had stimulating discussions about the topic in small groups after hearing a background presentation orienting them to the subject.  We encourage members to attend this event every year as a lead-up to the contest.
