Thank you again to Colquitt County High School for hosting our Sub Area Speaking CDEs. The time and effort you put into making this event happen is much appreciated!

The individuals advancing from each bracket of the sub area speaking CDEs are listed below. Congratulations to each that participated and to those that will be advancing to the next round.  The South Region Area V Leadership CDE Finals will be held at Bainbridge High School on Feb. 7th. More information will be sent concerning this event at a later time. 

 Both Jr. and Sr. manuscripts of those advancing will be scanned and emailed to the advisor.  You are allowed to make changes and corrections to the manuscript.  Each Jr. and Sr. Prepared Public Speaking CDE finalist is to bring 4 copies of the manuscript to the final round. We will use three of the copies during the speech by the judges and the fourth copy will be the manuscript that will be graded.  IF YOU DO NOT bring four copies that day, the original manuscript score will be used.
