Simpson College to host virtual high school debate clinic

Three-time national champions will host Iowa High School State Speech Association’s annual clinic


Simpson College (simpson.edu) will host the Iowa High School State Speech Association’s 50th Annual Debate Clinic on Saturday, Sept. 19. The clinic will be held in a virtual format in response to concerns over COVID-19.

Members of Simpson College’s three-time national champion debate team will host sessions throughout the morning of the virtual event, which is designed to provide basic public forum debate training for high school students and coaches from across the state.

This year marks the first the event will be held virtually.

“Simpson College is proud to host the IHSSA Annual Debate Clinic,” said Spencer Waugh, director of speech, debate and mock trial. “We see this as an opportunity to serve the community and meet talented students and coaches from across the state.”
