ScotSpeak!, a student-led campus organization, sponsors Monmouth College intercollegiate and on-campus speech and debate activities. 

ScotSpeak! has been very successful over the last two academic years, with students placing and winning awards at a number of regional and national tournaments.  ScotSpeak! was created about ten years ago by students at Monmouth who sought to bring back to the campus intercollegiate speech and debate.  They sought to celebrate the tradition of excellence that Monmouth College once exemplified when in 1947 Monmouth College was  home to the top ranked debate team in the country.

President for the 2007-2008 year is Pamela Steskal.  Email her a psteskal@monm.edu for more information about joining or supporting the team.

For information on the type of events the speech team competes in, feel free to visit this link to the events as formally described and governed by the American Forensics Association.  Click here for those event descriptions.
