BJA’s award-winning speech and debate team competes in debate, public speaking, and interpretation. The team competes about 15 weekends during the school year in tournaments in a three-state area—plus in the state tournament and the National Speech and Debate Association’s national tournament.
Members can also earn entrance into the honor society of the National Speech and Debate Association—the nation’s largest speech and debate organization.
Interested in being on this year’s team? Come to an interest meeting on Tuesday, August 14, at 3:30 pm in B-107. If you competed last year, went to speech camp, or didn’t do either of those, this meeting is for you. We’ll explain the opportunities and expectations for being on the team plus have a time for you to ask questions. If your parents have questions, they can contact Mr. Chuck Nicholas.
