The Nevada High School Speech Troupe is hosting Iowa High School Speech Association’s District Individual Speech Contest on Saturday, March 1. High schools from around the area will be sending 42 speech troupes, with approximately 675 speech and drama performances. All the performances are at the high school in classrooms and the auditorium, starting at 8 a.m. and ending around 4 p.m. Events range from monologue acting, interpreted prose, original oratory, solo musical theater and improv, to radio news. Come and watch high school students shine. There is a $3 suggested donation to enter.

Nevada High School is also in need of at least 80 volunteers to help make this event a success. If you are interested in helping or have questions, please contact Heather Ludwig at 515-382-3521 or
