Our elementary students compete in March and the middle school students compete each April. Students memorize a passage from such categories as Bible Memorization, Fables and Folklore, Humorous, Costume Monologue, and Poetry to recite in front of a panel of judges. Grade level competitions are held in-house first with the top three students per category advancing to the district competition.
NTCA has participated in the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Speech Meet competition since 2008. The purpose of the Speech Meet is to develop communication skills, poise and confidence in speaking before an audience and to encourage fellowship with students from other Christian schools.

Way-to-go, Aarin and Ivan!
Speech Meet is so much fun! Take it from the boys, it is!
We congratulate all the students for their participation in this challenging event at the ACSI competition held in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. We look forward to the results from the Middle School competition in April 2016.
This is a wonderful opportunity for students in grades one through eight to develop techniques to speak audibly, articulately, expressively and with poise and confidence. We feel so blessed to participate and are thankful for our school coordinator, Mrs. Childs, and our teachers and parents who work with the students to prepare for this annual competition.
APRIL UPDATE! Congratulations Middle School Students!
