Prose Interpretation (individual event) – Students read a piece of prose expressively. Students will have the printed text in front of them in a black binder/folder as they read. For BEST, we allow a mixture of stories, plays, and other material that would be considered “drama” to give our students a wider variety of sources. The piece must have an ISBN, ASIN, or ISSN and cannot be an original work of the student. Maximum time is 7 minutes, including the introduction.
