Twelve students at Legacy Traditional School participated in the school’s Great Communicator Lincoln Speech Contest on Wednesday.
The top was “What are the Benefits and Challenges in Creating a Sustainability-Minded Global Society?”
Emily Enriquez finished first, Filimon Kednmarey was second, and Alanna Mullins was third. The three received medals and certificates. The top two qualify for regional competition.
The students were required to research and write their speeches, explaining the issues and how focusing on sustainability can affect the economy, education, the food industry, the environment, business, advertising and architectural, fashion and technology design.
