DEBATE TEAM Purpose: To gain experience making an organized speech, meeting deadlines, and participating in analytical research. Opens for membership in August in preparation for the SCISA competition and other local debates. Team includes 4 or more participants with previous year’s team members having first refusal. Additional students with high scores in U.S. History Honors classes will be considered for membership. Teamwork is a necessity in this club. Therefore, deadlines and meeting dates are to be strictly adhered to. First unmet deadline or unattended meeting will result in a written warning. The second occurrence will result in probation. The third occurrence of either a missed deadline or missed meeting, will result in removal from club membership. Meetings will be announced via PlanetHighSchool at least one week in advance.
