expenses will be accepted.

all finalists from Lincoln's own tournament last Saturday as well as
a few others.

Greatest Day of My Life ... (So Far)," by Mark Scharenbroich, and

speaking. She will have 45 minutes to prepare a five-minute radio
script and will present it near the end of the program.
Senior Wyatt Phillis and junior Matthew Langdon will perform

humorous duet acting piece "Pillow Talk," by Peter Tolan.
