Ways to Get Involved

"The skills I learned - Critical thinking, problem solving, writing a cogent argument, communicating clearly - are the only things I learned in high school that I use every day. In every way, speech and debate was the foundation for my future life." - Abra Belke, Butte High School, MN - Class of 2000
