We had twelve amazing contestants participate in our 2013 School Speech Contest: Davis Long, Kinsey Mooneyhan, Alli Ingraham, Summer Hewitt, Bethany Davis, Maddox Bulris, Jasmine Johnson, Latasia White, Jillian Brown, Eva Robinson, Elizabeth Mize, and Jordan Sullivan.
After everyone delivered inspirational speeches about people who overcame obstacles, three finalists were announced. Maddox Bulris placed third with her speech about gymnast, John Orozco. Alli Ingraham delivered a thoughtful speech about her mother and placed second. Our first place winner was Davis Long! His captivating speech about Franklin Delano Roosevelt addressed the personal and political obstacles our 32nd president overcame.
Congratulations to all of our contestants! We wish Davis and Alli the best of luck in the Level II competition for Onslow County students!
