The Speech Team ran third annual photo booth at their home tournament and donated all the proceeds to SPC Tony Chobanov today.

“It’s all about being civically engaged and doing our part, as well as creating awareness for Tony. It’s a great way to spread the word, because now 17 schools know about this amazing veteran that we get to help,” speech coach Amanda Ams said.

To raise proceeds, the varsity team spent the day running a table with props where attendees could take photos at with their friends for one dollar. They could also enter in a raffle to win multiple different gift cards, or buy a brick from SOS to add to the wall for Chobanov .

“I just feel like the photo booth is a really great opportunity to not only help out with an organization that I have enjoyed participating in since freshman year, but to help out with such a great cause which is helping Tony build a house,” junior Shannon Steines said.

The activity encouraged a lot of creativity and team bonding between speech rounds, while helping an important cause.

“The photo booth is a great way to give back to the community, and to show off how cute my face is,” Wheeling speech team member Josie Levin said.

The afternoon was successful in raising over a hundred dollars for Chobanov and creating a playful environment during a stressful competition.
