The Greater Mankato Rotary Holds Their Annual Speech and Debate Banquet

Mankato Annual Speech and Debate Banquet

(Mankato, MN) — April 24th, 2024 — The annual event is held to showcase the talents of local high school students who participate in speech and debate programs in our district. The
nature of this extra-curricular activity is that it is often done in settings where the families of the students are not able to attend to cheer for their students. The successes of the students can often be over-looked by the school and the student’s peers.

For this reason, we want to give the students a platform to share their success with the community and their families. At the event, the students have a chance to present to the audience over
lunch and then each student is given a $300 check on behalf of The Greater Mankato Rotary to apply towards their choice of furthering their education.

This year we honored three students from Mankato East, three students from
Mankato West and two students from Mankato Loyola. A list of the students
and their categories are listed below and a more complete bio is available
upon request.
