2016 JH Speech Meet

Kong Speech Team

This past week, five JH students from Kong competed in the JH Speech Meet in Bethel.

We had five brave young ladies travel to Bethel this week to compete against several students from around the delta in the yearly JH Speech Meet.

Our team was made up of:
* Elsa Tinker - competing in the Yup'ik Humorous event
* Shayna Evan - competing in the Yup'ik Dramatic event
* Angela Kinegak
* Ryann Beaver
* Cassandra Brown - all three competed in the English Dramatic event.

This is the first year we have had anyone compete in the Yup'ik events for JH, it was very exciting!

The Speech Meet happens in four rounds - two standard, then the semi-finals and the finals. To get into the semi-finals, they average your scores from the previous two rounds and pick the top 7 in each category.

All of our girls worked very hard and ALL of them made it to the semi-final round - a HUGE feat and something to be very proud of.

Four of our girls made it to the finals, and here are the final results:
* Elsa Tinker - 1st place in Yup'ik Humorous
* Shayna Evan - 1st place in Yup'ik Dramatic
* Ryann Beaver - 3rd place in English Dramatic
* Cassandra Brown - 5h place in English Dramatic.

Please help in congratulating all five of our students!  This is not an easy activity to participate in.  They were all very brave and represented Kong in the best way!
