8th Grade Speech Scholarship Tournament

8th Grade Speech Scholarship Tournament

On Saturday, February 4, 2023, Mount Saint Joseph is hosting a Speech Tournament for 8th graders planning to attend MSJ. Scholarships will be awarded to the top three speakers who choose to attend MSJ.

February 2023 Speech Scholarship Topics:
  • Outside of your family, whom do you admire the most? Why? What types of things can you do to emulate that person?
  • More than just a Messiah, Jesus was also a great prophet and teacher, using parables and stories to spread his ministry. Choose a parable or teaching of Jesus. Tell us about it. What message is Jesus trying to convey? What does that message mean to you? What are you doing to live out that message?
  • President Jimmy Carter once remarked, “Whether the borders that divide us are picket fences or national boundaries, we are all neighbors in a global community.” What can you do to be a better neighbor to others? What can your school do to be a better neighbor in the community? What can America do to be a better neighbor on an international level?
