The 119th Annual Sherman Prize Speaking Contest was held on February 16, 2023, to a full auditorium and rapt audience. Congratulations and thank you to all the finalists for sharing their stories and inspiring new perspectives and actions.
At the assembly, students, faculty, and staff were joined by speakers’ family members and three judges—the people with the unenviable job of choosing today’s speaking contest winners. The six juniors’ speeches were judged based on originality, clarity, organization, and quality of delivery. Thank you to this year’s judges:
