Today, one of my junior high school second grade students got fifth prize at the Takamado Speech Contest. I'm really proud of her. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures because I was at another contest!
One of my high school second grade students went to the Brigham Young University speech contest in Hiroshima yesterday. She got first prize! Her speech was about helping families appreciate children with autism.
Then, today, at the Notre Dame Seishin University speech contest, she got first prize again with a completely different speech. This speech was about the meaning of family.
I'm SO impressed that she was able to keep track of two very different speeches.

We currently have 7 girls on our English debate team. We have four second graders and three first graders.
We're currently meeting twice a week. They are SO great. They are so motivated and hard-working, and they have super attitudes.
