Walnut High teen wins Speech Trek contest

WALNUT-Walnut High School sophomore Angela Cao took 1st place in the 2017 Speech Trek Contest.bwschools-wvusd1

The 10th annual Diamond Bar-Walnut branch contest was sponsored by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) on Jan 25.

Cao delivered a five-minute impassioned speech about the pros of passing the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

“I didn’t really know about the ERA, but this gave me the opportunity to research women’s rights,” she said.

“I think it’s important to know about the past in order to change the future.”

Good luck to Angela as she advances to state-level competition later this month!
