The speech team finished 2nd at the IHSFA Section 3 at Carroll High School! Also the speech team received more 1st places than any other team who competed.  If a competitor was in the top six of their event, they made it to state. Northrop qualified 15 members for the state competition. The individuals that qualified were:

  • Jaclynn and Jennifer Hess received first in Original Performance.  This is where you write your own piece and perform it.
  • Urvi Joshi received first in Impromptu Speaking; which is where you have 30 seconds to come up with up to a five-minute speech from the topic given.  Joshi also received first in United States Extemporaneous Speaking which is 30 minutes given to come up with up to a seven-minute speech on U.S. politics.
