Speech and Debate @ Trinity

Trinity’s Speech and Debate program has grown tremendously over the last few years and has most recently tackle the forming of a Middle School team. Speech and Debate is an elective offered to students but is also a club that students who can not fit the class in their schedule become a participant as an extracurricular activity. These students prepare speeches and debate against schools all across the state and even out-of-state schools. The types of debate range from one-on-one to partner, and even to congressional debate. Students involved in Speech and Debate also give solo speeches ranging from all kinds of topics and compete. This is a great way to not only stay involved in what is going on in the world around you, but also a great way to learn and master public speaking skills that will follow you fro the rest of your life in any field. Students earn points for the National Speech and Debate Association Honor Society and can earn degrees. If a student reaches 750 points, along with a excellent academic resume can become an NSDA All American. For Middle School students, 10% of their points earned in the MS Honor Society transfer to their HS points as they continue in this discipline.
