Lac Seul District Speech Competition
Tyllore Martelle - Staff Writer
For the last four years the Lac Seul District Speech Competition has been giving area children the opportunity to compete with self-written speeches. Grades 3-8 students from Obishikokaang Elementary School and Morris Thomas Memorial School compete for a chance to represent their school in the district competition after the class competitions are complete.
Organizer of the event Steven Korobanik explained how the event runs. “Students need to choose their topics, write rough drafts, and then good copy drafts before writing the speeches on cue cards and memorizing. They are judged at the competition by three individuals from the surrounding area.”
Gift cards are given as prizes to the top three winners. The first place winner gets name engraved on a plaque. The top three winners present their speeches to the Chief and Council.
The winners of the fourth annual competition that took place December 11 in Lac Seul were:
1st place: Bradley Trout with the speech Baseball.
2nd place: Cadence Kejick with the speech My Brother Jori.
3rd: Angeline Jacob with the speech My Sister.
