Meet the 2021-2022 Speaking and Service Award Recipients
Speech and debate is about more than competition. The Honor Society also celebrates students using their skills to better the world around them. The Speaking and Service Award annually recognizes students who go above and beyond in their service to their teams, schools, and communities. Students receive this award when they earn 200 service points in a given year, the maximum number possible in a school year in our Honor Society. Congratulations to the 2021-2022 recipients!
