Speech & Debate

The Lee and New Century speech and debate team members and Ms. Hyatt gather in front of Vestavia High School. They are wearing formal clothes and smiling at the camera.


Speech and Debate is a competition-based program where members can participate in any of 17 events, ranging from impromptu speaking to philsophical debate. We attend local, state, and national tournaments and focus on building public speaking, logic, and research skills at weekly practices. If you like politics, acting, or want to improve your public speaking, Speech and Debate is a great club for you!


Debate holds meetings on Thursdays from 5:00 - 6:00.
