Why Speech & Debate?
The Ohio Speech and Debate Association wants to promote the wonderful work that our student-competitors exhibit throughout the year.
And we want YOU to help.
We want student-competitors of The OSDA to create one-minute videos promoting the joys, challenges, and value of being a part of speech and debate. (What that means is yours/your student’s to convey through the video.) The target audience is other high-school students who may be considering what extracurricular activities to join.
