Spencer High School hosted the Northwest District Speech Contest of the large group speech division of the Iowa High School Speech Association on Saturday morning and afternoon. The event welcomed aspiring thespians to practice their craft in eight events including one-act plays, choral readings, readers' theaters, musical theaters, ensemble acting scenes, group mimes, solo mimes, group improvisational scenes, TV news broadcasts, short films and radio news broadcasts.
