Team Mission Statement
The JM Speech Team is committed to having a unified and competitive team that encourages growth as an individual as well as a team. We will accomplish this by creating an environment of support for our teammates that will help in the areas of creativity, professionalism, and hard work.
What is speech team?
Competitive speech allows each student to participate in one of thirteen categories (to learn more about the categories, click the here). Students travel to competitions in the area and participate in three rounds at each meet. In each round, they compete with 7 to 8 other students and then are ranked according to who has done the best in that round. Totals are added up and awards presented based on who performed the best in the day or perhaps in a final round of the best of the best. Students earn individual and team awards like ribbons, trophies, and pins.
