Finalists for the National Student of the Year Award
Each year we recognize one graduating senior as the William Woods Tate, Jr., National Student of the Year. Out of more than 141,000 student members, this student is selected as the best embodiment of the organization’s Code of Honor: integrity, humility, respect, leadership, and service. Nominees must also demonstrate strong academic credentials and a commitment to the speech and debate community. In the video below, we introduce the six finalists for the 2018 award, which was given to Elena Cecil of Larue County High School in Kentucky.
