WHY SPEECH & DEBATE

Speech and debate provides students a unique opportunity to develop important skills like research, critical thinking, organization, persuasion, teamwork, and effective communication. They also learn how to set aside personal bias and previous knowledge to respect another's position and objectively debate both sides of an issue.
