So, yesterday my class had a speech contest. We had about a month to memorize our speech, and it had to be a piece of published work. I was in the category ‘humorous,’ and did an excerpt from chapter 1 of Them Westing Game’ by Ellen Raskin. And guess what? I managed to get into the school contest!! I’m super nervous, because I’ll be going up against all the participating classes in the whole entire school. But hopefully I’ll do well.
