Seven Winneshiek county students have been selected to participate in the individual all-state speech festival later this month.

They earned the recognition through oustanding performances at last weekend's state speech contest at Starmont High School.

Decorah students are Daniel Rinaldelli, Micheal Foster, Kirsten Arneson, Gara Lonning and Lydia Dawley.

South Winneshiek is sending Jessica Lechtenberg and Raeann Klimesh (9th grade).

(Correction: At state individual speech competition, Decorah High School's Breanna Doyle received a I in Radio News, not a II.)

The all-state speech festival is March 25, in Cedar Falls.
