Waukon High School Radio group to perform at All-State ...

The Waukon High School Speech trio of (left to right in above photo) Teddy Holthaus, Emily Kolsrud and Steven Shogren were nominated for All-State Speech for their radio broadcast titled “Delta”. They were one of three Radio division acts to be selected out of 25 competing at the State competition held February 2 at Waterloo West High School to now compete at the All-State Festival this Saturday, February 16 on the Iowa State University campus in Ames. All-State nomination requires a recommendation for advancement from at least two of the three judges at the State competition, with one judge writing “brave choice” as a comment to the Waukon High School Radio group. The “Delta” performance is set in wartime and has a very chilling ending.

Also at the State speech competition, Waukon High School’s Choral Reading and One Act performances each earned a Division 1 rating, in addition to the All-State nominee Radio group. The Readers Theatre group earned a Division 2 rating, with the Ensemble Acting group still awaiting its Division rating by mail. Submitted photo.
