What we're all about

We are a passionate group of talented hardworking speech students from from Nebraska who have enjoyed the fruits of a stellar competitive forensics season. We have 15 team members who have qualified for the National Individual Events Tournament of Champions in Kansas City on May 12th-14th. In addition, two more students qualified for "the" national tournament this summer--the National Speech & Debate Association Tournament in Birmingham, Alabama on June 11th-16th. Our continued success depends on the support of our friends, family and community. That's why we are turning to you for help! We are raising money to help cover not only our entry fees (for example: our entry fees for the NIETOC tournament in May are $1,675), but also seeking help covering the cost of transportation (including airfare for the Alabama tourney), lodging, meals, etc. Please consider making a donation! Thank You
