Middle School Speech Team

Newton Public School students in Grades 6-8*, join the Speech Team to become a better public speaker, gain confidence for class discussions and dramatic presentations, win awards for yourself and your school, make friends with kids from all over the state, and have fun as part of an amazing team.

You’ll compete in tournaments through the Massachusetts Middle School Speech League (formerly the Forensics League) in the event you choose, from among prose or poetry reading, original oratory, impromptu, and more. All students are expected to attend a minimum of six tournaments in order to represent their team and improve their public speaking skills.

*Fifth graders are welcome to join this class, but per league rules they can not participate in tournaments except for the Newton tournament that takes place in the spring.
