Speech and Debate

Members of the speech team compete in several contests throughout the year. Students can choose from a variety of genres including four different types of debate, humorous interpretation, dramatic interpretation and persuasive speaking. I strongly urge interested students to join the speech team. Speech competitions are a fun way to meet new friends from around the state while polishing speaking and dramatic skills that are applicable in a variety of careers. Eligible students may also join the National Speech and Debate Association. Membership in this esteemed organization is a nice addition to a college application.
