Who are we?
To be on the team competitors must be enrolled in the fall course, known as Advanced Speech and Debate (In the spring, we become an after-school program). This class is designed to offer direct instruction in competitive speech events and debate. The variety of competition offerings allows for students with diverse interests/skills to discover the events with which they are compatible. Students who take Advanced Speech and Debate enjoy performing. This course is devoted to competition preparation and is structured according to speaking events officially recognized by the National Speech & Debate Association. Students do extensive research and are required to attend and participate in events held outside of school hours. This course is offered to freshmen through seniors. The competitive season runs August to April, and for those competing at Nationals, to June.
Speaker of the Tournament:
Speaker of the tournament is a highly sought after award granted to one team member in each block after every tournament. Each block votes for one individual who embodies coachability, positivity, drive, and a strong work ethic. All winners of this award will be posted on the Announcements page as well as emailed to families.
For more information, contact the team's coach, Mrs. Elko.
