The Speech/Debate Organization of Spring Woods High School is a very competitive program which competes locally, across Texas and nationally. AND it's not just debate! There are acting events and public speaking events too. Victoria Beard has been the director of Forensics for 13 years. Raul Ruiz is the assistant director.  We have qualified for UIL State in speech & debate for the past 7 years and have had UIL state champions and finalists. Our team competes at Harvard and Yale's Debate Tournament and had finalists there as well. At the Tournament of Champions, held in Lexington, Kentucky, Spring Woods Speech & Debate has had champions. This past summer Spring Woods' Speech/Debate team celebrated its 16th year at  the National Speech and Debate Association's National Tournament and earned a School of Excellence Award-which is awarded to the top 20 schools in America. Jeremiah Menslage placed 4th in Congressional Debate, & Hunter Brown placed in the top 60 in congress, & Cesar Bautista advanced to out rounds at NSDA Nats to help earn this prestigious award.
