Penn Christian Academy participates each year in the ACSI sponsored Speech Meet. All students select a poem, bible verse, fable or other piece of work to memorize and present to their grade. From that activity, two students are selected from each class to give their speech to the entire school. Those selected give their speech at a district meet to compete with other Christian Schools.
The objectives of the yearly speech meet are:
To provide incentives for students to develop skills necessary for Christian leadership.
To facilitate students’ learning process.
To help develop the skills to be an effective communicator.
To provide a degree of competition to develop participants’ composure and confidence.
To provide for a time of fun and fellowship with other Christian young people.
