The Oral Language Festival is a competitive event where students recite and perform an interpretation of a piece of literature. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to creatively express their love of literature using dramatic speaking skills. In addition, students gain confidence to perform for an audience.
4th - 8th grade students may compete in one of six categories:
- Serious Solo
- Humorous Solo
- Serious Duo - 2 students
- Humorous Duo - 2 students
- Verse Choir - 3 - 6 students
- Impromptu Speech
The top three entries in each category will move on to compete at the Regional Oral Language Festival with students from Rosedale, Fruitvale, Norris, and Rio Bravo-Greeley schools.
From the Regional competition, the top two entries in each category (except Impromptu Speech) will move on to compete at the Kern County Oral Language Festival.
