LKSD Jr. High Speech Contest Results

by Sharon Wegner

The LKSD District JR high speech contest was held in Bethel December 12, 13, 2022. There were 31 students from 5 schools (Akiuk, Akula, Ayaprun Elitnaurvik, Kwigillingok, and Quinhagak).

The students competed in Yup’ik and/or English speech categories. For the first time, we had more yugtun rooms than English!!!

I would like to thank all the coaches, chaperones, district office staff and community members that helped out as speech judges. Without your help, we would not be able to host a successful event.

Congratulations to all the students that participated in this event.
