Help Students Attend Nationals

The National Speech & Debate Tournament is proud to host at least 10 rounds of competition in every event, but we need your help to get each student there! Chip in $10—one dollar for each round—or more to help us reach our $10,000 match by March 15. Your contribution goes directly to the Tate Fund, which helps under-resourced schools and schools attending the National Tournament for the first time.
