Established in 1955 for 7th and 8th graders, the Henry Greve Speech Contest offers students the opportunity to present four-and-a-half to seven-minute speeches on a given topic. The competition, sponsored by Bakersfield Toastmasters “Golden Empire” Club No. 270 and the Kern County Superintendent of Schools Office, awards trophies to first, second and third place finishers. The champion’s perpetual trophy goes on display at the winner’s school for one year.
Beginning with its September regular Board meeting, the Kern County Board of Education has returned to an in-person meeting format. Members of the public wishing to comment on matters within the Board's jurisdiction will need to attend the meeting in person to do so, at the time and place stated on the meeting agenda. The agenda can be accessed at www.kern.org
The Board in the future may need to return to a teleconferencing format as permitted by the Ralph M. Brown Act based on conditions relating to the ongoing pandemic or as otherwise permitted by law. The meeting agendas will clearly indicate whether this is the case.
