RRCC Students Showcase Speaking Skills in 2015 Speech Competition
Students’ Speeches Tackle Topics from Helping the Homeless to Not Shaking a Baby

LAKEWOOD, CO - From helping the homeless to not shaking a baby, RRCC’s 2015 speech competitors persuaded the audience to take action on an array of topics.  Other students argued for a resource-based economy, avoiding sleep deprivation, staying rational while voting, saying no to GMOs, mental health treatment, and putting an end to shark finning.

Twenty-one Red Rocks Community College students, who had successfully completed Pubic Speaking classes within the past year, competed in the 24th RRCC Annual Speech Competition on Saturday, April 25, 2015.  At this dynamic persuasive speech competition, sponsored by the Communication program and Student Government, students showcased their speaking skills and competed for prizes.  The first place winner, Azalea Hagerty, with her speech, “The Life-Saving Benefits of Breastfeeding in the Modern World,” represents RRCC at the Metro/Citywide speech competition hosted by the Community College of Aurora.  Azelea was the winner of several prizes, including a certificate for a three-credit course at RRCC.
