Theme: What I Wish I Could Tell My High School Self or My Drama/Speech/Debate Story

Pledge 5 to 25 minute Speeches.

Proceeds Benefit the Speak Feed Lead Project.

Those of us who have found speaking as a profession come from a variety of origins.

Who we are now is the culmination of who we were our entire lives. Let’s celebrate our beginnings by telling stories about our high school selves.

So many of us owe our beginnings to that speech teacher or drama coach or debate coach who drove us around the state to competitions. That’s what National Speech and Debate Day celebrates. Whether that’s part of your origin story or not, celebrate with us by telling your individual high school (or high school age) story. Please name names and thank those teachers, mentors, and fellow students who inspired you.

You never know. They might be watching.
