Send Vanessa to Dallas to compete in Nationals!
Organized by: Gibran Graham
Vanessa Blake Graham, a Junior at Bangor High School, has been honored with the opportunity to be the only representative from the state of Maine to compete in Dramatic Interpretation at the 2015 National Speech and Debate Association tournament. This is Vanessa's second year on Bangor High's Speech and Debate team AND her second year qualifying for nationals. Vanessa has put all of her heart, soul, and effort into her performance of the short play "Darling, I'm Telling You" by Joyce Carol Oates this past year and has done extremely well in the state competitions. She now hopes to be able to bring her performance to the national tournament, but she needs your help! This year's national tournament is being held in Dallas, TX and the trip will cost a total of 1,200 dollars. Any contribution is helpful to help make Vanessa's dream come true of being a finalist in the national tournament.
