A small group of contestants from Green Meadow School, all 6th graders and participating for the first time in the higher level of forensic competition, is happy with their accomplishments at the recent National Junior Forensic League competition.
According to the Public School System, the event held on Oct. 19, 2013, at Saipan Southern High School was the first of four sets of competitions scheduled for the current school year.
Each contestant must succeed in three qualifying rounds to earn an accumulated number of points that would be considered among the highest to be declared a winner. Aside from the demands of performing successfully within the allotted time, most contestants noted that locating the right room or being on time for the next performance were challenges they had to overcome during the competition.
For GMS 6th graders, the NJFL competition was a great challenge resulting in great accomplishments. The school management, staff, faculty, parents, students and supporters congratulate all GMS NJFL winners and their hardworking coach, Lorelisa Espiritu. (GMS)
