The Highland Speech and Debate Team has continued to reach new competitive heights with another amazing season so far, most recently earning 5th Place in the state at the IIFA State Tournament at Prairie State College on March 1-2. Now, the team is preparing for a strong showing at Nationals in Reno, NV!

One of the college’s oldest and most decorated student organizations, the Highland Speech and Debate Team (also known as the Forensics Team) travels the state and country to compete in a variety of performance styles ranging from public speaking to acting to poetry performance to debate.
