West Pine Middle's Speech and Debate Club page

Speech and Debate Club

The Speech and Debate Club is an organization where students meet to learn more about public speaking and public forum debate. Public Forum debate is a clash of ideas communicated in a manner persuasive to the non-specialist or "citizen" judge. In public forum, debate students aim at displaying solid logic, lucid reasoning, and depth of analysis while utilizing evidence without being driven by it. Students practice communicating ideas with clarity, organization, eloquence, and professional decorum. The culminating event is a presentation of their research at the English Speaking Union Debate Tournament at Sandhills Community College in the spring of each academic year.
