Six school districts competed in the Modern Woodmen of America Speech Contest on April 20 (Randall, Washington-Caldwell, Walworth, All Saints Catholic, St. Joseph’s, and Stone Bank).

Prior to this contest, the students had already won first or second place in their local level contests. This year, students had to prepare presentations with the theme: An Interesting Landmark.

The first place winner was Zoie Kinjerski, a 6th grader from Washington-Caldwell School. She won a $50 cash award and a trophy. Her school also took home an engraved trophy for her accomplishment. The second place winner was 7th grader, McKinley Boyle from Randall School and the third place winner was Maxwell Hildebrandt, an 8th grader from Walworth School. Both of these students also received trophies.

These three students will now move on to the state level on May 18.
