begin writing speech

The speech contest will be a blind judging, meaning no one will know whose speech they are reading.  Scores will be based on content and heart not grammar or spelling.  Giving a senior speech is an honor and a privilege and it is our hope that many of you will be compelled to enter the contest. This is your opportunity to bless those who attend with your testimony about your faith and your experience with home education. All entries must adhere to speech guidelines. See Learn More button for details.
