Who We Are

Plano West's Speech and Debate program has been ranked among the top 10 speech and debate programs in the country by the National Speech and Debate Association for the past 5 years. PWSH's 2018 Summer Speech and Debate Camp is designed for students who seek a substantial competitive edge at middle school and high school debate tournaments. The camp challenges students' abilities in persuasion and argumentation and motivates them to improve their public speaking and debate skills. 

What We Do

Plano West's Summer Speech and Debate Camp offers instruction in Extemporaneous Speaking (both Foreign and Domestic), Original Oratory (OO), Public Forum Debate (PF), Congressional Debate (CD), and Lincoln-Douglas Debate (for high school campers only). While we recognize that events like reader's theatre, lip sync, storytelling, etc. are offered at the middle school level, our focus is on preparing middle schoolers for events they can compete in during high school. High schoolers may enroll in any of the 5 events offered.
