The winner of the highest-level skit contest was Bellevue High School’s “Speed Dating in Japan,” a comedy sketch about a young girl choosing a boyfriend - all four performers were male.

The winner of the highest-level speech contest was Garfield High School’s Amira Abdel-Fattah, who gave a speech on issues regarding global warming called, “The Environmental Problem.”
