    OJH Speech

    Competitive Speech is a class where we have students learn acting pieces, speaking pieces, and debate. Then, during the second semester, they go to tournaments at other schools on Saturdays and compete. If the team does well enough they get to bring back the team trophy. Congratulations to the 2017 Ozark Junior High School Speech Team for placing 2nd at Districts in Republic on Saturday, April 29!

    As an 8th grader this will be a semester long class. As a freshman this will be a year long class. If you have 5-6 Saturdays in the spring to commit to, you like to perform in front of people, and you can think on your feet, give speech and debate a try!
