After the Lambda Pi Eta Speech Contest this past Thursday, April 21 in the Alumni Center, many audience members couldn’t stop talking about new media technologies.
From speech topics related to the detrimental impact of texting on face-to-face interaction to how social media distracts youth from paying attention to the news and the world around them, select students enrolled in IHCOMM 171: Public Speaking put their oral communication skills to the test in front of a large audience.
Thanks to Bedford/St. Martin’s book publishing company for sponsoring prizes for the winners.
The Speech Contest is an annual event run by Lambda Pi Eta, which is the honor society for communication students at Keene State College.
