US Speech & Debate

In addition to State Competition, the Upper School Speech and Debate Team is also gearing up for the National Tournament. Eight EPS students have qualified for the National Competition. Students have grappled with multiple topics over the long season. They must be proficient researchers, articulate their thoughts clearly, and respond effectively to the other sides’ argument, all while maintaining decorum and respect.

National Competition qualifiers are: Audrey ’25 & Ryan ’25 and Aroura ’24 & Alex ’25 for Public Forum teams, and Abby ’25, Arushi ’25 and Addy ’26 for Congress and Fred ’26 in Speech. Congratulations!
