Pictured is Lion Mary Knaus observing Jamison Tubridy (her grandson) and Jordan Massmann playing a learning game on the iPad.

Kimball Speechers traveled to Sauk Centre Saturday, March 2, to compete with 16 schools for top honors. At a speech tournament, students are ranked in each of three preliminary rounds, where competition is randomly drawn. Scores are then tallied, and speakers with the eight highest ranks meet in a fourth round. In this final round, the speakers are scored by three judges. Team points are tallied based on both preliminary and final round scores.
