East Ridge Speech Team

The East Ridge High School Speech Team is excited to take part in our 10th season as a competitive activity! Each year approximately 65 students and 8 coaches work to develop speeches in one of fourteen different categories including Humorous, Extemporaneous Speaking, Serious Drama, Informative, and Storytelling. Students compete in tournaments around Minnesota and throughout the country – usually traveling to 3-4 different states in a typical season. Learn more about the East Ridge Speech Team by exploring this website and contact a coach if you have any questions!
