Fredericksburg Area Speech and Debate students are raising money this summer by sharing their skills with kids in the community in a fun, one-day Speech and Debate Summer Workshop.

Short instructional times are followed by games and activities that give students a chance to learn about speaking and debating. Topics include interpretive speaking, platform speaking, and debate in a structured format. Everyone gets a chance to participate in a friendly, low-pressure environment.
