PICK DEBATE, SPEAKING, OR BOTH
Debate Programs are for students who want to work with others with an emphasis on arguing for and against debate topics.
The Speaking Program is more for students who want to work on their own speeches with an emphasis on choosing their own speech topics. Students do two types of speeches.
During one Session (July or August), you can choose one of or both of:
--One debate program (elem, ms, hs, or congress)
--The speaking program
If you want to do Congress and Debate--do one of them in July and one of them in August.
If you want to do four kinds of speeches--do the speaking program in July and in August.
Yes, you can do both the July and August debate programs.
