Through this initiative, students explore speechwriting and the importance of using their unique voice to be heard.  Students will understand different types of speeches and their purposes; learn about the communication process and techniques used to make compelling speeches; and understand the steps of putting together a speech from start to performance. The Unheard 8-day curriculum culminates in a national speech contest.


Stories get told every day, but only some voices get heard.

Through this initiative, we ensure our students’ voices do not go unheard.
