ESCC hosts 7th annual English tournament

ENTERPRISE, Al. (WTVY) -- The 7th annual English tournament took place at Enterprise State Community College Friday morning.

House Bill 206 allocated an additional $30.5 million to counties in the form of block grants so schools could hire new personnel, train existing staff, invest in programs and contract for outside services.

70 students from high schools around the Wiregrass competed in essay, exam, and speech competitions.

Students have 25-minutes to complete exams and 90-minutes to complete their essays.

Once all tasks are complete the students are judged on their performances.

Dr. Anna Head believes students should be recognized for their academic abilities.

"We love to give students the opportunity, who excel in the areas of literature and writing and speaking, the opportunity to shine. We also love to give area students the opportunity to visit our campus” Dr. Head said.

If you would like your students to participate in next year's competition, you should contact Dr. Head at ESCC.
