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 Рusually traveling to 3-4 different states in a typical season.
