Hudson youth competes at national speech tournament
Hudson – Jonathan Barndt, 17, from Hudson traveled to Purcellville, Va., earlier this month to join more than 500 students competing in the National Speech and Debate Tournament. Barndt had qualified to compete in the Illustrated Oratory Speech category with the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association.
Home-schooled students aged 12 to 18 compete at local and regional tournaments around the country in the winter and spring, culminating in the national tournament in June. Jonathan’s speech, “Making Cents Doesn’t Make Sense,” was one of 24 entries that advanced to the quarterfinals at the national tournament.
