Speech and Debate is a combination of public speaking, acting, and arguing all in one competitive sport. We attend touranments beginning in October. Our season runs through the beginning of March. There are also opportunities to qualify for State in April and Nationals in June. There are three “tracks” that students can take: Speech, Interpretation, and Debate. In Speech, competitors craft a persuasive and/or informative speech and then present it to a series of judges. Depending on the specific event these speeches are either written on the spot or carefully curated over the year. In the Interpretation events, competitors take pieces of literature and poetry and present their interpretation of them either by themselves or with a partner. In Debate, students work as a team to prove their side of an argument against another team from a different school.
