Junior Kira Amels is on the Mountain Vista Speech and Debate team. Amels will be entering in the “Light the Stage: Spark a Revolution Spoken Word Poetry Contest” for a chance to proceed to the national competition for Speech and Debate. It is a video contest with more than 200 students competing across the country.
Along with judged finalists there will also be six students selected as “People’s Choice” finalists to compete in the first elimination round. These “People’s Choice” nominees will be selected based on the number of YouTube likes received on their videos.
