As AAUW California Speech Trek enters its 15th season in 2021, we remembered the past and thanked the Gray Allen family, who for twelve years generously supported Speech Trek in honor of Eleanor Stem Allen, past president of Roseville Branch, award-winning educator, and loving wife and mother.
AAUW California congratulates this year’s winners who spoke about whether men and women are truly equal in 2020:

2nd Place – Jackson Patten ($1,000), Stockton
