On March 7, 2016, the Mentor Grades 7/8 students participated in the speech competition at 9:30 am and the Grades 5/6 students had theirs at 1:30 pm. The audience enjoyed an afternoon of splendid speeches in the O’Brien Hall. All of the student speakers who participated in the finals had worked beyond expectations on their speeches. They presented in front of more than 200 students, parents, and teachers. The MTPA awarded three prizes per grade for a total of 12 winners to the students who won the competition.
