What we're all about

Img 0041  1
We're a passionate group of students from from District of Columbia that works hard to achieve great things with our the Speech and Debate team. Our success depends on the support of our friends, family and community. We are currently raising funds to send 21 students and 7 adults to the national middle school speech and debate tournament in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 14-18, 2016. Any funds we raise here will be put toward paying for airfare for a couple of our students who need financial assistance.
