|Welcome to the Oak Ridge High School Debate Team! |
Welcome to the ORHS Debate website! The ORHS debate program strives to teach students the value of logic, reasoning, and tolerance of others’ opinions. Students learn how to conduct research, write cases, debate, and work as part of a team. We attend 2 - 3 tournaments per month and participate in community service projects. In addition, we host two tournaments each year for the area junior high schools.
CONGRATULATIONS NOVICE STUDENTS!
The novice students had debate tournaments on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday and many earned their membership into the National Speech and Debate Association. I am very proud of the novice for their hard work and giving this new activity a chance AND for my JV and Varsity students who helped mentor and judge the tournaments for them. Our induction ceremony will be on Wednesday October 25th at 7pm on the senior campus in the auditorium.
Students participating in Y & G or MUN must fill out by September 29 this registration form. After filling it out there is another on line form you must fill out for the state participation. The link will be emailed to you if you contact me.
ORHS DEBATE is ranked #2 in our district
ORHS DEBATE is ranked #4 in the state of Texas!
DRESS CODE FOR TOURNAMENTS
Students must wear a suit (male or female version); dress socks/hose and shoes. In addition students must not have unnatural colored hair-blue, purple etc, should be well groomed and minimize the amount of jewelry worn. In short, the student should be dressed as if they were an attorney presenting their case in court in front of a judge. If you have questions feel free to contact me.
