As the first semester comes to a close, the second brings an uprising of new and different sports and activities. From January to the middle of March, the Speeches will travel around the state to compete against other schools.

Speech and Debate is an activity that many students enjoy and take great pride in. Senior Bryant Erickson said, “It was interesting to meet such a wide variety of people last year.” State this year will take place in Lander, and is scheduled to be held on March 8th through the 10th. The National Qualification tournament is held on March 15th through the 17th.

When asked how Spech and Debate helps students beyond high school, Coach Robyn Johnson said, “The skills learned through preparation and competition in Speech and Debate will help students in every aspect of their lives. Speaking and presenting ones’ self with confidence and poise will pay dividends in job interviews, work environments, and every personal interaction encountered. Developing critical thinking skills, formulating valid arguements and counterpoints, as well as thinking on your feet provide invaluable skills that benefit students through the rest of their lives. I strongly feel that participation in Speech and Debate will have a great effect through the rest of the students’ high school career, and honestly, the rest of their lives”.

Right before the Christmas break, speech meet to share some holiday cheer and exchange White Elephant gifts, resting up for the long season of competition and traveling to come.
