Seventy-two years after the Honorable John H. Bartlett (Governor of NH 1919 – 1921) established a prize speaking program in Sunapee for school children; students continue to present their memorized pieces in this annual contest which was held on May 30, 2014 at Sunapee Middle High School.

Students were judged on the following: interpretation, poise, diction, voice, memorization and the difficulty of the piece.

Sophomore Rachel Malenga was awarded first place honors for her recitation of “The Type,” by Sarah Kay.  Senior Aubree Kozie placed second with Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree” and Uzma Malik won the middle school competition with her presentation of Richard Blanco’s “One Today.” Participation awards were given to senior Sam Nosenzo for presenting an excerpt from Vladimir Nabokov’s “Pale Fire,” sophomore Savannah Borelli for her recitation of “Confrontation,” from the musical “Jekyll and Hyde” and seventh grade student Amanda Hanson for her presentation of Shel Silverstein’s “Peanut-Butter Sandwich.”

Ms. Andrea Gosselin and Ms. Ellen Wassell acted as judges for the event
