I was a judge Friday at the speech meet held at Helena High. I've been doing this for the past 4 years and each time I come away impressed and amazed by these teenagers. Most adults would be horrified to speak to an audience, yet the teens don't receive the support or glory we give athletes. The teens are intelligent, poised, articulate and well groomed. They are a credit to their coaches and parents. It is disappointing that the IR does not devote space to honoring these kids.
