Maumee's Speech and Debate program has been providing students with the skills and confidence to communicate their ideas for the past 50 years.
What is Speech and Debate?
Speech and Debate is an opportunity for students to develop their public speaking skills and compete against other schools for trophies, awards, and recognition. From acting, to inspirational speeches, to classic argumentation, we have it all!
In addition to the many benefits of speech and debate experience, there are scholarships specifically for those involved in our program. Many colleges such as Ohio University, Eastern Michigan University, and the University of Western Kentucky offer full rides to participating students who transfer from a high school program into their collegiate program their first year. Other universities provide partial rides, including Bowling Green State University. National and State competitors are often offered substantial scholarships from many prestigious universities, including Harvard and Yale.
Any students who are interested, even if they are unsure, can attend one of our team meetings held after school in room 115. For those who cannot make it to a meeting, you may send your questions via our Contact page and a coach will get back to you as soon as possible.
