Speech Parent Showcase & Contest Info

Tuesday Jan. 16 Parent Meeting & Showcase
We’ll begin at 6:45 PM in the WHS auditorium with a meeting to update/inform parents and performers on the contest process. It’s great to know what to expect from the contest day. Our showcase is the event which gets performers and spectators contest-ready.  Photos & video are NOT allowed at contest, so showcase is your chance.  Snap away! The schedule will be created over the weekend and shared via REMIND and posted HERE.
*Much of our team is also involved in the 9th grade team Showcase Monday night, acting as timers, “judges,” and team leads. Thanks for their time and leadership!

Saturday Jan. 20 District Contest at Creston
Performer buses will load at 5:45 AM from the west side of WHS (outside of aud and band room). Parents are encouraged to attend contest at Creston HS. Students are expected to stay all day unless in show choir.  We also need parent drivers to bring show choir performers to Johnston. Thanks!

We’ll have a list of just our Waukee performances, but in the meantime, here’s a look at the whole District Schedule – Creston
Waukee: school 913
and Waukee 9: school 859
Schools are identified by school code only.  Do NOT wear any Waukee wear or chat “go Waukee” or we face potential disqualification.

Saturday Feb. 3 State Contest at Waukee!
So much is underway planning for our state contest coming up so quickly. We expect 100+ schools and approximately 3,000 people through in our Waukee home. It is a huge (and crazy) undertaking but it’s a great honor to host contest!  It’s the one “fundraiser” we do every 2-3 years.  We need YOU!  More information will be forthcoming from Mr. Nate Jorgensen who is our volunteer coordinator. We don’t have a “Speech Booster Club” so we need parents and students to put on an event of this size.


More info – including Showcase Schedule will be posted soon!
