Individual Speech All-State
Congratulations also to all of the Central Lyon speechies who performed at state competition on Saturday. We had a total of eight ones and four two ratings. Such talented and hard working young people we have at Central Lyon. A big congratulations goes to Brady Wright on his third consecutive year of being selected to perform at the All-State Individual Speech Festival. He will perform his Literary Program Hats Off to Baseball at All-State in Cedar Falls on Monday, March 26, 2018.
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.
