Scholarship for Debate and Forensics Participation

Debora Marsh

The money would be used to allow students who can't afford the Pay to Participate fee. We do not have a budget to attend tournaments so students on the teams must pay their portion of the registration and judge fees.

The scholarship money will offer students a chance to be part of the Debate and/or the Forensics teams. Students who participate in Speech Activities are better prepared for life. Students improve their communication, critical and creative thinking, and collaboration skills. They critically analyze a variety of topics and texts and become much more well-rounded as learners and citizens.
