The year is already upon us. Hopefully everyone had an exciting summer and is ready for the Speech and Debate season. The calendar page is updated for 2019-2020 and we are already planning our first event – the ASDCA Conference on September 7th. Please watch out for emails from Meg Howell regarding the conference and let her know if you want to be a presenter.
Go Team AZ!

A huge thank you to the schools that came out and competed at the Winter Trophy tournament at ASU last weekend.
