OMAHA (KPTM) - The Maverick speech team is busy talking themselves up some support. The University of Nebraska-Omaha's team dished out tacos and other Mexican style food. The team also held a silent auction for the first Forensics Fiesta Fundraiser.
UNO's speech team just got back from competing at the American Forensics Association National Individual Events Tournament where they placed sixth in the entire nation.
Members of the team are already hard at work making sure they can afford next year's national competition.
Abbie Syrek, Director of Forensics, said, "They work every single day on becoming the leaders of tomorrow. Without being able to finish the season to go to nationals, it would be like a football team that doesn't ever have a shot at the playoffs, it never gets to go to the Super Bowl because those big events represent, they're representative of what we do."
If you were unable to attend the fundraiser you can still make a contribution to the team by visiting the UNO Forensics Development Fund website at https://nufoundation.org/SSLPage.aspx?pid=895.
