The National Speech & Debate Association’s honor society recognizes students for participation in speech and debate activities. Students earn distinction through speech and debate competition, community service, public speaking and leadership activities. In addition to offering the student a deserved honor, this offers a measure to demonstrate commitment to the activity to colleges or other entities. 

Visit the NSDA website for more information on the honor society, earning points, and the various degrees of honor.
