Jackson Junciton, Iowa – Upper Iowa conference speech students will have a one last chance to perfect their craft before heading to district speech.

West Central high school in Maynard will be hosting a speech meet this Saturday.  The event begins at 9 am.  Admission could be $3 or a free will donation.

Nystel says her students have been practicing several hours before and after school to accommodate for busy schedules.
