Speech Debate tweaked (1)






The Plymouth High School Speech and Debate Team will be holding its annual Showcase this Friday, May 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the Studio Theater.  This event is open to students, faculty, and the community. The PHS Speech Showcase is twofold. It provides an opportunity for PHS students who have qualified to represent northern Indiana for the 2017 National Speech and Debate Tournament in Birmingham, Alabama this June, a chance to perform in front of their peers, family, teachers, and community. Second, it is an opportunity for these students to raise funds to go towards the cost of attending nationals.


Entrance will be from the north parking lot at door 5. Admission to the PHS Showcase is free; doors open at 6:30 p.m.  Donations will be accepted to defray national trip expenses.
