“Speak Up” Tournament

Family, faculty, and friends were very impressed with the performances of 38- 3rd – 8th grade students for the 6th Annual Lutheran School’s “Speak Up” Tournament.

Students from Martin Luther Grammar School in Sheridan WYO, Trinity Lutheran Classical School (TLCS) in Miles City, MT, Trinity Lutheran School (TLS) and Mount Olive Lutheran School (MOLS) both from Billings braved the stage to share their speeches from four categories: Memorized Bible Verse, Memorized Poetry, Memorized Public Address and Impromptu.  Mount Olive Lutheran School hosted the event organized by Karla and Katie Berst, judged by LCMS Montana District President Terry Forke, Attorney Kathleen McQuillan and Judge Jessica Fehr.
1st and 2nd place trophies were awarded to Ben Rice of TLCS, Christian Beck of TLS, Ella McCoy of TLS, Jayda Hatzell of TLS, Elijah McCall of MOLS, Katelynn Debus of MOLS and Hannah Comly of MOLS. Great Job to all who competed!
