Speech and Debate Club Description
The S&D Club is a co-curricular activity that provides opportunities for acting, arguing, writing, traveling across the country, and being part of a team. The program builds the communication, critical reading, research, critical thinking, persuasion, leadership, teamwork, and presentation skills of all members. Members can compete against other high school students in local, regional, or national tournaments to exercise those skills. Young scholars find broad application of the skills honed by the club both in and beyond the classroom. The program also provides opportunities for community service relevant to the speech and debate community.
