DES MOINES, IOWA (November 20, 2018) – The National Speech & Debate Association is proud to announce Club Awards for nearly 800 schools. Club awards are awarded to schools who meet a certain threshold of strength points.

“Our Club Award winners show an incredible commitment to this activity, their students, and their success,” said J. Scott Wunn, Executive Director of the National Speech & Debate Association. “These programs demonstrate outstanding commitment to teaching students essential life skills—including communication, research, listening, writing, and organization.”

Strength points are calculated based on student and coach achievements in competition and service. For each degree a student receives, they also earn one strength point. A school’s strength is the sum of each student’s strength plus the strength of up to three coaches.
