Recently, West DeFuniak Elementary held the 2017-2018 Tropicana Speech Competition.  Twenty-two students competed for opportunity to represent our school at the district competition at Freeport High School on December 14th at 5:30.  All of the students did a fabulous job speaking in front of their peers, parents, teachers, and judges.  We are so proud of each student for the hard work that they put into this endeavor.  We look forward to hearing the first and second place winners from each grade level present their speeches at the district competition.  Congratulations to our fourth grade winners Chandler Shoaf - 1st place, Gracelyn Daniel - 2nd place, and Rhiannon Fountain - 3rdplace and fifth grade winners Addie Ingle - 1st place, Emma Lathinghouse - 2nd place, and  Daisy Proffitt - 3rd place.
