Speech Meet (3rd – 8th grade)

The Veritas Speech Meet takes place every year during February. This fun event provides an opportunity for students to practice their public-speaking skills. Each participant is being “graded” against set criteria, such as appropriate volume, eye contact, etc. and not competing against fellow classmates. Afterwards, all will be given helpful, written feedback from three judges.

To learn more or volunteer as a judge for this great event, please contact our Speech Meet Coordinator.
