The DeKalb Middle School Junior Beta Performing Arts Group placed 2nd in that category for their “SPEAK LIFE” skit during the State Convention November 23-25.
The winning group consisted of 43 students , which included 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
“SPEAK LIFE” is a hard hitting drama about the pressures teens face while navigating through a world where they aren’t promised tomorrow.
What if Today was your last day? In a time of Negativity SPEAK LIFE! In a world of darkness and Pain SPEAK LIFE!
The students will be traveling to Fort Worth, Texas June 19-22 to attend the nationals and compete in the same category against schools from all over the United States. In addition to winning second place, 7 girls were given a Golden Ticket for their performance. They will attend practices in Fort Worth to learn dances with kids from all over the country and be a part of the opening act for the National Convention. Those girls are Annabella Dakas, Madeline Martin, Deanna Agee, Caroline Tobitt, Abby Cross, Ally Fuller , and Addyson Swisher.
