Speech and Debate will help each student become their best self advocate, learn to work in a team environment, and grow in their speaking and debating skills. Each event requires hard work, preparation, and a determination to achieve individual goals. We compete at two day, overnight tournaments in Kalispell, Billings, Great Falls, Bozeman, etc as well as hosting The Annual Dusty Roads Speech Competition in December in coordination with Carroll College who hosts their Annual Debate Tournament. Are you curious? Want to come have snacks after school and make friends? Need a bit of help with your homework? Like to argue? Love performing with a partner? Come check us out after school in B2 computer lab! Our official tournament season runs from October 1, 2017 to March 1, 2018.
