Queens College Speech Society is the speech and debate program at Queens College. We are hosting a debate tournament on Sunday, Sept 27th, 2020. This tournament will be an online competition taking place on Yaatly.com - a new and revolutionary virtual debating platform.
The team is looking volunteers to judge debate rounds at our upcoming debate tournament on Sunday, Sept 27th, 2020. Our tournament will be offering three formats of debate, which are International Public Debate (IPDA), Parliamentary Debate (NPDA), and Lincoln-Douglas Debate (NFA-LD).
We will provide virtual training for those who are interested in judging debate rounds! Those who are judging must attend the training to participate! We will hold a judge training session on Saturday, August 15th at 3PM on Zoom. You can access the meeting code on Google Meets: https://meet.google. com/udz-wfeu-stj

The mission of our team will be one that recognizes the importance of forensics by shaping eloquent and intellectual public speakers. We will accomplish this by engaging in acts of public discourse, rhetorical criticism, persuasion, research, and oral interpretation. This is a unique student-run organization where team members can develop public speaking skills through dedication, practice, and participation. In addition to competing within intercollegiate speech competitions, the QCSS will seek to sponsor, organize, and run speech and debate tournaments, community service projects, and fundraising that are in the best interests of public speaking. We welcome all who share our core values to come visit us at the Student Union and take part this in wonderful new chapter for the Queens College Speech Society.
This is an academic student organization. As such, the team offers skills to Queens College students that are necessary to confidently and effectively communicate in any situation. This activity teaches students to research, write, and deliver valuable messages in a wide range of topics. By participating in this program, members of the QCSS will follow current events, engage in critical and rhetorical discourse, immerse into a wide-array of fiction and non-fiction literature, and will master persuasion at various intercollegiate speech and debate tournaments.
