NVHS Speech & Debate
The NVHS Speech & Debate Team is open to all grades & experience levels. Our aim is to teach public speaking, critical thinking & analysis of current events while sharpening these skills in the forum of competitive debate.
During the competitive season -- September through April -- practice is held every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30 - 3:30 pm and Thursdays second break in Room 118.
Our team is a member of the Sagebrush League of Northern NV as well as the National Forensics League.
The National Forensics League posts all of the debate topics on their site. You will find that page here!

Finding blogs on the internet that deal with Speech & Debate is an exercise in frustration. Too many dead links to count. With that in mind, here is a bundle of Google Reader feeds that I read about Forensics! If you want to kow what is in that feed, the individual links are on the right!
is a terrific site with lots of resources for coaches and debaters.
