Speech and debate team news Birkholz takes second in poetry BY PATTi CARPENTER The speech and debate team travelled to Worland this week for a two-day competition. Thirteen went to the meet, which coach Deb Fink thought was a great learning experience for all. "The kids are doing re- ally good so far," said Fink. According to assistant coach Jason Zeller the con- gressional debate team learned a valuable lesson, "get up and talk more!" Jessica Emmett, Bai- ley Dugan, Mary Schwope, Wray Krei, Austin Brost, Adam Larson and Chase Aagard participated on the congressional debate team at the event. "The, :stud]e)arned 'that the more they speak, he better they are at plac- ing and that the more confi- dently they speak, the more credible they sound to the judges," said Zeller. For the congressio- nal debate, students write speeches both for and against a bill. Some of the topics are made up, and some are topics seen in the news. The competition is set up like a legislative ses- sion, where a topic is intro- duced and students com- pete by standing up and giving their point of view on the subject. Some exam- ples of topics include lower- ing the student driving age to 14 and getting rid of the "happy meal" at McDon- ald's. Student Jessica Em- mett likes this kind of com- petition because she loves to argue all sides of an ar- gument, She thinks it hel.ps her to stay current on 1s- sues. "It's a whole lot of fun and I really like it," said Emmett. "I might use this someday to go into politics or to become a lawyer." Emily Birkholz placed second in the poetry con- test reading poetry by hu- man rights activist Andrea Gibson. Birkholz received feed- back this time that her ren- ditions were too similar and plans two different read- ings in her next competi- tion. Students like Birkholz will typically perform the same material each meet and will make modifica- tions based on the judges' comments. Birkholz hopes that this strategy will take her to a first-place win in future competitions. The team consists of students from both Lovell and Rocky Mountain High Schools.  The Lovell group pre- sented some of their more child-friendly pieces at Lovell Elementary school this week, which provided good practice before a high- ly receptive young audi- ence. "It was a lot of fun per- forming for the younger kids," said Fink. "I think the students who partici- pated really enjoyed it." Next up, the students will travel "to Jackson Hole where 385 are entered to compete and 185 students sit on a waiting list hoping to fill any spot that opens up. "We can only enter four students per event in this meet, so students won't be able to compete in as many events as they would like," said Fink, who anticipates that this will be a very com- petitive atmosphere d a good leai'ning :expe'riende for all who attend. Teams from throughout Wyoming and some from Idaho are expected to attend.
