Honor Academy students went to the 35th Stanford Invitational Speech and Debate tournament and had a very productive time this past weekend until Monday, Feb 8, 2021. We had students competing in Lincoln-Douglas debate Middle school division, Lincoln-Douglas debate Novice division, Lincoln-Douglas debate California Open division, Lincoln-Douglas debate TOC (Tournament of Champions) division, Public Forum debate Middle School division, Public Forum debate Open division, Public Forum debate TOC (Tournament of Champions) division, Impromptu JV division, Informative speaking JV division, Original, and Oratory Novice division.
