Last Saturday on February 9, the regional speech competition took place and Dunlap students crushed the competition.


Dunlap sent 14 students, one to compete in each category, and all 14 are advancing. Seven of those students are advancing in first place.


The regional speech competition is a pivotal moment during competition season. Those who win at the regional competition can advance to sectionals where competitors for state are selected.


The speech team can hardly celebrate their big win however, due to sectionals being held on February 9.


Speech Captain Emma Ross says their win is, “the cherry on top of an already wonderful year.”


The state competition finals will be held February 15-16 where a state champion will be chosen for each event.
