York Speech Team


What is speech team?

The York Speech Team is a competitive organization that rehearses and prepares oral interpretation and public speaking events at local speech tournaments where each performer is judged against performers from other schools.  Students are assigned to compete in a specific event (see overview sheet), and they compete against other teens in that same event, where a neutral judge evaluates them.  Their goal is to take first place individually in that event—their performance in the event also affects their team’s overall score (think a gymnastics competition).  At the end of each tournament, there is an awards ceremony where individual and team medals are passed out to the performers with the highest scores.  Although highly competitive, the Speech Team is a great way to make friends while developing necessary speaking and performing skills that will be a great asset in the coming years.
