The West Delaware Speech team faced many difficulties due to COVID-19 restrictions. In spite of COVID, the speech program still took place. They ended with two large groups advancing to All-State. 

Seventeen events qualified for state speech. Out of 17 events, 12 received division one ratings. 

Two events received All-State nominations. One All-State nomination was Ensemble Acting performed by Maddie Hoeger, Natalie Kehrli, Faith Litterer, Sheeley McMahon and Anna Werner.

The second All-State event was a short film performed by Kelly Beckman, Sheeley McMahon, Andrew Salas, Nicholas Stocks, Karley Fisher and Jacob Wenger.
