How to make Alexa speak ?

Total Newbie, first project. I have a MKR 1010 and have it connected with WiFi into my existing network. Have Alexa Arduino skill enabled and accounts linked. I want to connect a NO/NC contact sensor to the MKR1010 and have its status upon change announced by Alexa, ie "front door just opened". Is the a function in Arduino IOT to cause Alexa to make an announcement? How do I direct output from the MKR 1010 to IOT and then IOT to communicate that to Alexa so a routine in Alexa could then take action on it. I do this now with a Zwave sensor through Smartthings hub, but am trying to eliminate having to use the Smartthings hub for this project. TIA
