On February 23, 2022, students participated in Amherst College’s annual speaking competition. Student finalists (from all class years) wrote powerful, persuasive speeches based on the theme of Progress, and spoke compellingly about what matters to them. Speaking prizes were awarded at the conclusion of the event.
