Elena and Florence getting ready to take off for Bethel.
On November 11th and 12th we were in Bethel for the competition. They had a preliminary round on Tuesday night and then the finals were on Wednesday. Both of my students did awesome and I was so proud of how hard they worked. We got to see some really great speeches and the competition was tuff. I am proud to say that Elena placed third in the humorous category and Florence placed first in dramatic.
Getting their awards.
Yay trophies! Go Eek!
So proud of these girls, they worked very hard and it payed off.
The top two winners in all the English categories get to go to Anchorage and compete in the Alaska State High School Drama, Debate & Forensics Competition. So Florence and I will be traveling to Anchorage sometime in February for the competition. It was a really great experience for them and I look forward to doing it again next year. Hopefully, I will have more students interested.
