Homeschool Speech & Debate Workshops and Competition

NOTE: This event is not running for the school year 2016/17. We hope to resume again next year.

If you can conquer your fear of public speaking and communicating with other people, there is almost no limit to the impact you can have on the world around you. -Dr. Jeff Myers

The Windsor-Essex Homeschool Speech & Debate Association is excited to announce our sixth year of training and cultivating communication skills. As in previous years, we will offer three 2-hour speech workshops and a speech & debate competition day. The cost of this speech opportunity is a non-refundable flat fee of $10.00 per student with a maximum of $25.00 per family payable at the first workshop. This fee covers the three workshops and all expenses for the competition day which includes a pizza lunch.

This year speech students will be divided into three age categories:

  • Juniors - those students born in 2005 or later
  • Intermediates - those students born in 2003 and 2004
  • Seniors - those students born in 2002 and earlier

Parents will be given the freedom to move their individual children into a different age group if they feel it is best for the student.

Speech Workshops are scheduled for the following Tuesdays from 2:30-4:30:

  • Tuesday, September 22, 2015
  • Tuesday, December 1, 2015
  • Tuesday, March 1, 2016

The Speech & Debate Competition will be held Saturday, April 16, 2015.
