Speech and debate got a shoutout in The Washington Post! Supportive family members make such an impact on students, so take a moment to thank those who made your speech and debate career possible.  
"This age-old school club is still as hot as ever, and the National Speech & Debate Association is a great way to discover types of debate and competitions." 

Suit Up Anyway

The Archbishop Mitty Speech & Debate team started a social media challenge for teams missing rocking their suits every weekend. Find videos from multiple teams by searching #SDSuitUpAnywayChallenge, and if you want to participate yourself, tag us @speechanddebate
