On February 23rd, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) hosted their annual Speech Trek Contest via Zoom. The topic was "Has social media helped or hindered the breaking down of barriers for women and girls?" Congratulations to the winners! Oakwood Senior Lili Jaquet took first place, Oakwood Freshman Jullea Powell took second, and Oakwood Sophomore Jillian Bogosian took third place. Oakwood Sophomores Sophie Lord and Reena Panikar also participated. Each of the students gave poignant speeches on the topic and should be proud of their performances. Lili will now have a chance to compete at the state level.
