Welcome to the Lakeville North High School Speech Team website!
The Lakeville North Speech team is composed of 54 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.

While this season has been full of change and challenges and was often not what we were expecting, we are pleased to present to you a virtual version of our annual team showcase!
This showcase has always been a fundraiser for our team, with tickets costing $5 per person. While we don't have a convenient way of collecting ticket fees this year, we hope that you will take this into consideration and if you are financially able, make a donation to our team in an amount that might be commensurate with what your family would have paid in a typical year, or more if you are able.
These funds go to help support our coach salaries, team registrations, and supplies and we are very appreciative of anything you are able to give! Simply click here to donate!
