Students learn to create factual, logical, ethical, and emotional arguments to persuade others that their point of view is correct.  The club’s purpose is to teach and train students in the fundamentals of debate and public speaking.  The goal is to prepare students to compete in local debate competitions. 8th graders planning to apply for the incoming 8th grade Speech competitions at MSJ and OLGCHS are especially encouraged to join Speech Club for coaching and practice in preparation for these highly competitive scholarship competitions in Spring 2020.
