Niwot High School senior Elizabeth Elton is not only a 4.0 IB student (4.4 GPA weighted) and a speech captain for the Forensics team. She also competes in weightlifting and Cross-Fit competitions. Though she has yet to turn 18, she moved into the women’s 18-35 division for the Cross-Fit Open this year, as she will reach that age before the regional competition.

As a forensics captain, “I teach forensics members about the different events and coach them on speeches,” she explained.

Elton competes in Original Oratory, where she has to deliver a 7-10 minute persuasive speech, and also in National Extemporaneous Speaking, where participants have 30 minutes to prepare a 5-7 minute speech on a national issue without using the internet.

Her other activities include Wellness Club, Asian Culture Club and National Honor Society. She also works after school as an intern at the law offices of Warren, Carlson & Moore in Niwot. Elton has been accepted at UCLA and plans to major in biology.
