Caravan Speech and Drama

Speech Team, or Individual Events, is an IHSA sanctioned competition which is more like a sport than a club.

Students compete in one of fourteen individual events ranging from duet acting to original comedy to informative speaking and impromptu speaking. Students interested in acting, public speaking, debate, law, developing top notch public speaking skills, or competing against schools throughout Chicagoland should try this competitive activity. Tournaments begin in November and culminate in Regionals, Sectionals, and State which takes place February.


In the Caravan's first year of speech team, students advanced to IHSA finals in the following categories:

- Sectional Qualifiers: William Maloney in OC, Branimir Illic in Extemp, and Justin Fekete in SOS and RS.

- 11 events qualified for the regional final rounds.

-Justin Fekete qualified for the IHSA State competition.
