Dear Parents,

As college applications increasingly emphasize the unique strengths of students, speech and debate activities are considered key indicators of leadership and critical thinking skills. Besides aiding in academic advancement, confident and logical communication will also benefit students for a lifetime. Participating in speech and debate competitions is the best way to train in these areas.

The Millburn High School Speech & Debate team is well-known for its outstanding performance. Team members have participated in numerous competitions and frequently win best debate team honors.

In the 23-24 school year, the collaboration between the MHS Speech & Debate Club and MIOT has been met with enthusiastic praise from both students and parents. We are thrilled to continue this momentum by offering an expanded 30-week course in the upcoming 24-25 school year.

For many students interested in joining the speech/debate team, how and when to prepare has always been an important topic. To address this, we have invited several MHS Speech & Debate team captains and outstanding members to share their valuable experiences. The content will cover everything from debate basics to self-preparation and the course outline. This rare opportunity occurs only once a year, and we sincerely invite interested students and families to attend the Open House meeting this Sunday at 10:00 AM in the high school cafeteria. Look forward to seeing you there!
