Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) student Arissa Jensen of Grimes delivered a speech on the History of Portuguese art during the annual informative speech contest held on the DMACC Ankeny Campus.

Jensen finished in sixth place in the contest and received a $20 gift certificate from the DMACC bookstores, a $5 gift card to Subway and a DMACC International Year T-shirt.

The contest was won by Ryan Bishop of Des Moines, who spoke on “the art of board breaking.”  Bishop, who has broken boards and bricks with his hands before, demonstrated how to break a board using only his hands during his speech.
