The Bluejays had five students make it to the finals round. Elandra Johnson broke into the Consolation final of Dramatic Interpretation, Emerson Lindley broke into the Consolation final of Informative Speaking, Tatum Gossin broke into the Consolation final in Persuasive Speaking, and Josetta Ward broke into the Next In Final round of Humorous Prose. Riley Herring made it into the Championship finals in Entertainment Speaking and placed sixth overall.
