The Manteno speech team has attended five out of their six tournaments this year. At the Seneca tournament, Emma Schnitzler managed to place fifth in Poetry. Paige Ridgely also did well at Seneca, placing sixth place in Prose. Paige Ridgley also competed in finals at Coal City. At the ICE Conference tournament, Ainsely Martin had a great performance, earning third place in Original Oratory and placing 4th overall in the entire tournament. Their last tournament is Regionals, which will be hosted in Morris on February 8th.
At every tournament, the contestants perform their work three times to a different judge each time. The work can be published or original based on the event that they are in. If they perform well then they make it to the finals, which each of the members listed above succeeded in doing. The finals consist of six speakers, who perform their work one more time in front of a panel of three judges. After the final performance they are ranked between sixth and first place for the event.
