Speech and Debate: On the Road to Victory

Published: February 21, 2018

College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) mighty Speech and Debate team has proven themselves time and time again in the hard-fought battle of verbal camouflage – coming in hot off a tremendous victory at the Northwest Forensics Conference Division III regional competition at Pacific University’s Scheller Invitational in January.

The team swept their competition bringing home multiple victories including first place overall for Division III schools. The CWI championship Speech and Debate team is marching into history, dominating the competition at every turn. Their next conquest is fast approaching in less than three weeks and counting. They will compete at the Pi Kappa Delta National Comprehensive Tournament in Nashville, Tennessee, March 14-17, to defend their five-time national title!

Let’s show our support for this amazingly talented group! CWI’s Speech and Debate team is not here for casual conversation, they are ready for gladiatorial combat of the intellect! Go #mightyCWI!
