Grand County High School senior Grace Osusky placed second at Summit Academy in the final round of Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking on Tuesday, March 13, and qualified for the National Speech and Debate Tournament.

She joins Sophomore Ty Martinez, who qualified in Congress earlier this month. Miranda Corbin, Aidan Guzman-Newton and Phillip Geiser also qualified as alternates.

The students hope to raise funds to allow them to travel to Nationals in June in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
