Thank you again to Ware 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 VI Leadership CDE Finals will be held at Bacon County High School on Feb. 9th. More information will be sent concerning this event at a later time. 

Each Jr. and Sr. Prepared Public Speaking CDE finalist is to bring 4 copies of the manuscript to the final round.  You are allowed to make changes and corrections to the manuscript. I highly suggest that you look over your manuscripts and compare it to the manuscript grading rubric in the CDE guidelines. 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. Because of the delay in determining the area finalist due to the postponement of yesterdays CDE preliminary round, there is limited time for you to make corrections to manuscripts and return to us prior to the finals.  Therefore, the corrected copies you bring will be judged AFTER the speaking final round which will delay Jr. and Sr Prepared Speaking announcement until manuscripts are judged next week.  This will be done as quickly as possible.  IF YOU DO NOT bring four copies that day, the original manuscript score will be used.    

Those advancing to the Area VI Speaking CDE finals are: (IN NO RANKING ORDER!)
