Providing these opportunities at Kingwood High School is the mission of Friends of Kingwood Debate. Kingwood Debate is special--The program boasts the highest number of members from a single public school in the country to be named to the USA Debate National Team, with four KHS debaters earning positions on the world-renowned team in just the past two years. This summer, Kingwood Debaters won the NSDA National Championship in World Schools Debate. As an organization, we raise funds to offset the many expenses involved in providing students opportunities to compete at speech and debate tournaments in the state of Texas, nationally, and even internationally. We believe that the more opportunities students have to compete in tournaments that offer quality opponents, the better prepared they are to advance in higher education and apply their communication skills to everyday life. Kingwood Debate’s global recognition stems from the travel opportunities that have been afforded to us which are only possible through community support and fundraising. Students who are active in speech and debate throughout high school graduate with valuable skills in problem-solving, inferencing, supporting claims with evidence, speaking confidently, and advocating for justice and equality. These students develop their voice in our program, and we are so proud of the numerous ways in which they grow and develop, showcasing their school and personal pride.</span></p>
