Large Group Speech

Districts Jan. 20

 Story image 1_0

 This season of large group speech began in September with speechies organizing groups and choosing material for contest.  Speech coach Mrs. Hakeman has 21 students this year in 3 categories: ensemble acting, improv, and mime. Speech students are very committed to the program and practice both early mornings and after school. The goal of each group is to perform at a high level at district competition, so they can advance to state competition. The ultimate goal of every group is to perform at the All-State Festival.


District competition is on Saturday, January 20, at Sheldon High School. Below is a rough schedule of our times at Districts; keep in mind that there could be drops causing the individual to perform sooner than their expected time. A $3 donation is requested at the door. State contest will be held at LeMars High School on February 3, 2018. A reminder at all contests that individuals may not record or photograph; this is grounds for disqualification.


Mrs. Hakeman is very proud of how hard the students have worked this year and is excited to see what contest has to bring. Speechies always love an audience, so we encourage you to come out and support us at our competitions!

Results - coming! 

Districts - January 20

State Speech - February 3  

“I have participated in Large Group Speech my entire high school career, and I couldn’t ask for a better experience. I love being able to be with my friends and acting comedic skits. There are so many different options to do, it can range from Mime to Improv to Musical Theater! It can be stressful trying to memorize lines and actions, but in the end it pays off. I have been able to go to State, and I am so glad I had such a fun experience!”
