English Speech Contest November 14

altThe third annual English Speech Contest was held Saturday, November 14, on the Willamette University campus.

There was also a performance by WU acapella group, Tandem.
 
First place was awarded to Risa Suzuki, second place went to Narumi Miyazawa, and third place went to Misa Shimizu.
 
Participants included Narumi Miyazawa, Mayu Nozawa, Kazuma Saikawa, Satomi Seki, Misa Shimizu, Ayano Shiomi, Risa Suzuki, and Yuka Tani.
