The Dunlap High School Speech Team has one of the longest seasons in IHSA with a team full of categories, performance, and growth.

 

Former teacher for the speech team, Mrs. Stacey Brooks, says, “Our score depends on how many teams go and how much support we have there.”

 

According to Mrs. Brooks, the win goes to whoever has the highest score of all their performances added up. They have 14 categories overall and students can perform in up to three categories.

 

“The team has 66 members, which is à lot to think about,” says Mrs. Brooks.

 

Students get to choose or buy their pieces from other writers, which they can perform. They also have the option to make an original piece.

 

Captain of the speech team, Emma Ross, says, ¨You really have to be pushed out of your comfort zone to go far.¨

 

According to Ross, each performance is a challenge, ¨Getting more people to laugh and show emotion is the hardest part.”

 

¨Competing is a little intimidating the first couple of times,” says Ross, “You are getting in front of people you don’t know and putting your hard work out there. Eventually it becomes a routine and you start having fun with it.¨
