This year's National Speech & Debate Tournament featured students from 49 states, four countries, and two US territories. With nearly 10,000 students, coaches, educators, and parents from across the country participating in the tournament each year, the National Speech & Debate Tournament is the largest academic competition in the world. Almost 200,000 students are members of the National Speech & Debate Association, and only 4% qualify to compete at the national tournament. The national champions make up less than 1% of all speech and debate competitors.

Special thanks to our coaches: Mr. Hubbard, Mr. Denis, and Mr. Orlowski.
