Individual Speech has has been quite successful this year.  Eighteen Central Lyon students prepared pieces in a variety of categories including: Prose, Poetry, Literary Program, Improvisation, Acting, Reviewing, and Solo Musical Theater.  Three students were chosen for All-State for five pieces; the largest number of pieces qualifying since 1998! The All-State Festival will be held in Cedar Falls on Monday, March 27, 2017.

All-state students, along with categories:

Austin Thomas – Poetry – Performing; Acting – Non-Performing

Hope Rasmussen – Prose – Performing

Brady Wright – Literary Program – Performing; Prose – Non-Performing

 

How does one earn this prestigious honor? Three judges critiqued performances at the state level.  If the performer receives at least two “I” ratings from the judges, he/she will receive an overall “I” rating. Then, it is possible to be considered for the All-State Festival. Two “I” ratings, however, do not guarantee an All-State selection. Two of the judges must make this recommendation. The All-State festival simply showcases the most outstanding performers in the state with one judge providing comments at the end of each category session - no individual ratings will be given at All-State.

We certainly have some amazing talent at Central Lyon. Congratulations to Hope, Austin, Brady, and their speech coach Mrs. Kroon.
