Three Indiana University students, Anna Moore, Hannah Katinsky, and Margaret Speir, presented at the annual Midwest Korean Speech Contest on April 1st, which was held at Northwestern University. These students were selected to participate in the competition after winning first prize in their respective levels at the Indiana University Korean Speech Contest, which was held at IU on March 25th.
Anna and Hannah both won Honorable Mention (3rd place) in the beginning and intermediate levels, respectively. We would also like to acknowledge Margaret Speir for her excellent speech, narrowly missing a prize in the advanced level.
This year, 42 students (17 at the beginning level, 14 at the intermediate level, and 11 at the advanced level) from 18 schools participated in the contest. The Korean Language Program at IU is always well-represented at this competition, and we are proud to say that this year was no different!
Please join us in congratulating our students for their excellent speeches!
