speech and debate team

 

In its first year, the Speech and Debate Team will provide opportunities for students to compete in both individual events and parliamentary debate. Previous experience in high school is always appreciated but not at all necessary. In addition to the team’s competitive focus, students will also have service learning opportunities to work with the regional high school speech and debate community as critics, coaches, and mentors.

Serious Speech and Debate Team members are eligible to earn course credit and scholarship money.
