Each year more than 800,000 students will build their communication, leadership, cognitive and presentational skills through speech competition. Join the long list of competitive speech and debate alumni from from presidents to Supreme Court justices, from congressional leaders to entertainment greats. Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Ketanji Brown Jackson, Elizabeth Warren, Zach Efron, Josh Gad, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Jessica Chastain and Stephen Colbert are only a few who found their voice through Competitive Speech.

Competitive Speech students pledge to uphold the highest standards of respect, integrity, leadership, humility and service. Their diplomas carry the honor seal and Speech students wear honor cords at graduation. Come join us this summer for a fun and exhilarating two weeks of games, activities, and hard work that will see you emerge as a poised and polished speaker, ready to begin a year of competition!
