WAHS junior wins trophies at Stanford speech competition

Posted on: February 26, 2018

Megan Cox has had a remarkable school year so far. The West Albany High School junior won honors earlier this month at the Stanford National Speech and Debate Invitational on Feb. 10-11.

More than one thousand students from 268 schools around the country and Canada, competed in speech and debate categories. Megan won third place in Original Oratory, third place in Humorous Interpretation, and eighth place in Program Oral Interpretation.

Megan plans to study business and hopes to attend Stanford. She is building her resume with other speaking opportunities. In December, she was selected through an application process to speak at the 2017 TEDxYouth@Portland conference where she spoke of the effects of humor on society to an audience of 245.
