Speech & Debate Club to Participate in Winter Warm-Up
Posted 11/22/2019 10:32AM
For the third year running, members of our Upper School Speech and Debate club will be participating in the Muwekma Ohlone Winter Warmup tournament on Saturday, Dec 14. This annual event (Muwekma Middle was formerly known as Burnett Middle School) is a wonderful introduction to speech and debate competitions and our students always have a great time. The focus is on fun and helping young students expand their public presentation skills. Students have the opportunity to participate in various events lasting 1-3 minutes, and note cards are encouraged! This year's events are: Pet Peeve, How-To, Campaign, Poetry/Prose Reading, and Modified Impromptu.
Big thanks to club leader and OOS parent Beth Martin (Quinn, 'OOS 18, ND '22 and Syd, OOS '20) - founder, leader and mentor of our club - for chaperoning our entrants through this great experience!
