Stilwell Jr High Invitational
2017 — West Des Moines, IA, IA/US
Stilwell Jr. High Invitational
MS Speech and Debate Tournament
Saturday, May 6th, 2017
Stilwell is proud to announce the Stilwell Jr. High Invitational, to be held on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at Stilwell Jr. High School. This is our first MS tournament and we hope that you will consider joining us – all schools are welcome!
Junior High / Middle School programs have been growing in the state of Iowa for many years, due largely to the efforts put forth by Tim Sheaff of Dowling Catholic High School. As the number of interested schools has grown, so has the desire for more opportunities for participation in speech/debate activities.
This year, MS students will have two opportunities to compete in interscholastic speech/debate activities, as follows:
ü DM East hosting May 6th – main contact is Lauren McCool (with Dave McGinnis hosting additional events at Stilwell Jr High)
ü Bettendorf hosting May 13th – main contact is Joe Rankin
The tournaments are not as seamlessly integrated as previous years, but will offer 2 great opportunities for MS students to compete.
This is an exciting time of the year, as we all strive to help get MS programs up and running. If you (or someone you know might be interested) have any questions regarding speech and debate activities, please send me an e-mail using the contact information below.
Thanks again for your support and I look forward to hosting our first MS tournament. See you in May!
Bettendorf Head Speech/Debate Coach
