 About Us

 
Congressional Debate is a public speaking event in which current events (foreign affairs, public welfare, economics) are debated, simulating a real legislative situation as might be found in Washington D.C. or Springfield. Students have the opportunity to write legislation on a variety of topics and debate with other area high schools at a monthly tournament. The team also participates in state and national tournaments. Congressional Debate is a learning experience in reasoning, public speaking, negotiation, parliamentary procedure, and current events. Participants have the opportunity to have fun and meet students from different schools. Public Forum is a two man team debate on topics of current societal interests. Highland Park will participate in local and state tournaments, and a national qualifying tournament. Students do not need to be a member of the Congressional Debate team in order to participate.
