This is the final speech of the week-long competition for Connor Rothschild answering the question: “Was the US war in Afghanistan in vain?” The six premiere finalists drew random topics 30-minutes prior to their speech and crafted a 7-minute talk, followed by cross-examination from another competitor. The compiled totals of 13 rounds of speeches on various foreign policy topics earned Connor Rothschild the 2017 National Champion for International Extemporaneous Speaking (representing Kickapoo High School, Springfield MO, and Coach Jon Marc Baney).
