WHY JELLYBEAN

SPEECH OLYMPICS?

WANT TO JOIN US?


Each contestant must have their own Peer Coach.  The peer coach may be a regular education student from your current Speech Team or your Theatre Program. Your Middle School contestants may either have a Middle School peer Coach or a High School peer Coach. Peer coaches may only coach one contestant each.


Peer coaches will:

  • Assist their contestant in preparation for their event(s)
  • Travel with their contestant to and from event rooms.
  • Watch their contestant compete.
  • Be with their contestant at all times during the Festival
  • Be supportive and encouraging at all times to all contestants.



Join our wonderful team of Jellybeans. We are looking for-

  • Performers
  • Peer Coaches
  • Teachers
  • Volunteers
  • Positive Audience Members



 “We are all Jellybeans in the clear glass Jellybean Jar of Life"

by Sara Given

After directing the "Jellybean Conspiracy Show" in the Spring of 2013 for my Theatre Class at Mexico High School and watching the Special Olympic athletes present acceptance speeches at the Believer’s Banquet I realized that students in Special Education in my community needed a place to showcase their talent on a stage platform with the help of a helpful Peer Coach.And so, our Jellybean Speech Olympics journey began in the Spring of 2014.

I am proud to share that my community is really excited to help support this event. Last year’s Speech Olympics was a great success, and with your participation this year, I think we can continue a new and exciting experience for all of our students.  To quote one of my Jellybeans “Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be like all the other kids in school."
