Welcome to the Lakeville North High School Speech Team website!


The Lakeville North Speech team is composed of 64 highly talented students with a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and passions. There are 13 events of competition in Minnesota, ranging from humorous to dramatic to informative, each of which requires a multitude of different skills. Competing locally, regionally, and nationally, the North Speech program has won numerous awards at each level of competition. Students enhance important, lifelong skills in written and verbal communication, and develop confidence, poise and perseverance.















National Showcase, Monday, May 23rd, 7:00 p.m.


Come and support our team members heading to National's in Kentucky!  All ticket sales will be donations to help alleviate the costs of the competitors going to the national tournament in June!

The night will feature seven speakers who are competing in the tournament and it is a great mix of Humor, Duo, POI (Programmed Oral Interpretation), Informative, Oratory, Extemp Speaking and Prose...something fun for everyone!

Your support allows these students the opportunity to practice in a large space in front of a larger audience, the help them prepare for potential "outrounds" at nationals. It's a great chance for our team to share some of the incredible things we have created this year.  Please click this link to purchase your tickets today! Thank you so much for your support!
