Some of the state’s top young talent will perform today (Saturday) at the Iowa High School Speech Association’s All-State festival in Ames. Craig Ihnen, a spokesman for the association,says approximately 26-thousand students started out at district competition, and if they received a one rating, they moved on to state competition. Two of the three judges on the panel at state had to deem them as outstanding performers for them to be selected for the all-state festival. Ihnen says that narrows those selected for the festival to about 15-hundred. He says it’s the select of the select of Iowa’s speakers and actors. Ihnen says you can attend the event at the Iowa State Center. He says you can buy a six-dollar wrist band and see performances from one-act plays, to mimes, to TV newscasting. The festival begins at eight this morning and runs until 4:45.
