    Attend the after-school practice session for the debate or speech event you're interested in (this schedule will be posted shortly). If you are uncertain of which event(s) you'd like to participate in, you should— 
    Debaters and speakers are welcome to compete in more than one event (i.e. many Congressional Debaters also compete in Speech Extemporaneous Speaking), although most find concentrating in one area is key to a rewarding experience (also, schedules at some tournaments may preclude double-entry). It's also not unusual for competitors to switch paths during their high school careers.
