PAGE 6 THE PRESS MAY 8 r 201 3 Park River students take r ithird in regional speech, Aggies take down Tornadoes take eight to state By Katelyn Anderson of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The Park River High School speech team had a very successful year this year under the direction of Kierstin Hurtt. With 21 total team members, the speech team had eight make it to the state compe- tition at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks on April 27. All state participants qualified from one of ten regional tourna- ments or at an invitational tour- nament held during the season. The eight people who made it to state are as follows: Haille McLaughlin in poetry, Bridget Foerster in impromptu, Anna Rand in speech to persuade and serious interpretation, Isak Johnson in humorous duo, Daniel Onstad in humorous duo, Rylan Setness in impromptu and speech to inform, and Albert Irvine in impromptu. "It's a great accomplishment to have six sophomores make it to state," said Hurtt, "It's difficult to make it and it depends on how many individuals compete at re- gionals." The team took third at region- als in the sweepstakes. "We have a good sized team for the area," said Hurtt. The speech team worked hard all year competing at different meets and practicing after school to perfect their speeches. They will graduate senior Brid- get Foerster. "State speech is a lot of fun, the people who are at state speech are the people who actually care about speech and you meet a lot of in- teresting people there," she said. "Speech gives you a lot of good skills for when you enter the 'real world'" Foerster urges the underclass- men in speech to try and get their friends involved with the pro- gram. pitcher Abra- ham Hankey throws a curve ball to a Cava- lier batter. Han- key pitched the Aggies to a 13-3 win over Cava- lier.  'It's a reat accomplishment to havslx sophombres make it to state,' said Hurtt." NDDOT announce seat belt essay winners at area schools BISMARCK, N.D. -- One of the North Dakota Department of Transportation's (NDDOT) mis- sion is to educate drivers about get- ting to their destination safely. Recently the NDDOT held an es- say contest to increase seat belt use and awareness within North Dako- ta schools and communities. On April 30 and May 1 representatives from the North Dakota Depart- ment of Transportation (NDDOT) will be visiting five schools throughout North Dakota and an- eof their "Seat ; where stu' denis were "aske the question, "Why is wearing your seat belt im- portant to you?" "It was awesome to see the great response to this important safety message," says NDDOT Safety Director Mark Nelson. "We should be proud that so many of our youth understand the im- portance of buckling up. But it's still important to persuade others to follow suit to help prevent se- rious injuries and deaths on our roadways." Out of the hundreds of essays submitted, twenty winning essays were selected from students rep- resenting five different schools (Carrington High School, Horizon Middle School in Bismarck, Cen- tral Middle School in Grafton, Lis- bon High School and Larimore High School). "Not only will we be announc- ing the essay winners at each school, we'll also get a chance to educate students on the importance of wearing their seat belts," says Nelson. "It's about reminding them that buckling up is the most effective form of protection in their vehicles. It's about saving lives." Last year, 65 percent of traffic fatalities in North Dakota were un- belted. "Whether you're heading out on a cross-country road trip or just up the road," added Nelson, "buckling your seat belt is the eas- iest way to protect the lives of yourself and your passengers in the event of a crash."

Training takes place at NDSCS's state- of-the-art diesel technician training facilities, which is one of the largest of its types in the U.S. Students receive technical training on Case IH equipment and related products through a com- bination of classroom instruction and hands-on laboratory experiences. They also benefit from tuition assistance and technician toolkits. As Dealer Principal Brian Hanson explains, "This program will benefit our growers and our dealership through well-trained technicians, and help provide great job opportunities right here. We're sponsoring internships for these stu- dents at our dealership to reinforce on-campus Waining and give students real-life shop service practices." The program's components also address green technology through changes in emission standards and alternative fuels that will contin- ue to advance changes in this industry. The Case IH program takes five semesters or approximately 20 months to complete. Students may register at NDSCS, but should make arrangements with their local Case IH dealer to arrange scholarships and secure their internships as part of the program.
