Speech Tournament is an annual Barrington 220 event for students in grades 4-8. To participate, students need to find an adult to mentor and coach them, a script they will enjoy performing, and fill out a registration packet. Students can work alone and have a solo performance, or they can work in pairs, or groups of four. The tournament is usually held on the first Saturday in March at Station Campus. The district purchases speeches for students to select from and they can be found with the School Coordinator on their Speech Tournament Schoology Group.
Students are judged in the following categories. Ribbons, participation certificates, and copies of the judging sheets are then provided the week after the tournament.
