This speech, performance and debate team offers a high-quality learning opportunity. Our team competes from September-April, travels to two or three tournaments a semester, and OCC covers the cost of judging, registration and etc. Undergraduate students in good academic standing can compete in one or more events (Informative Speaking, Poetry, Dramatic Interpretation, Parliamentary Debate and more), earn college credit for their work, and may even be eligible for scholarship money.
Our next tournament will be Saturday, Dec. 8 at EMU (Pray-Harrold Bldg.) If you are enrolled in OCC classes, let's start working on your pieces now. It is best to be ready a week or two prior to the tournament. If you have a topic or performance idea, please email me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to watch, the tournaments are free and open to the public. Please join us!
