Aquin Speech is Hosting Conference Tourney!

Come to the Aquin Dawg House on Saturday and see the Aquin Speech team as they host the Conference Tourney. There will be some awesome performances and you are welcome to be a part of the audience. Just remember to observe the proper speech spectator etiquette--no cell phones, no talking, no disruptions--during the performances.


All 14 speech categories will feature performers from these schools within our conference which have Speech participants: Aquin, Le-Win, River Ridge, Warren, Orangeville, Stockton, Galena, Eastland and Pearl City.


If you haven't been to a Speech Tournament before--or are interested in learning about Speech as an activity to be involved with--this is the perfect opportunity!
