Speech Team

Speech is the largest competitive extracurricular activity in the country amongst non-sports. The Stillwater Area team travels to ten meets in the spring, where students compete against students from all over the region, in an attempt to qualify for state and national championships. There are 13 categories for students to choose from, which are broken down into two main groups: competitive acting (humorous acting, dramatic acting, storytelling, creative writing, interpretive reading, etc) and competitive public speaking (persuasive, informative, current events, group discussion), so there is something for everyone. Stillwater won its first Section and Conferences championships in 2021 and is poised to continue finding success. Head Coach, Joe Kalka offered, “I cannot think of an activity that better prepares students for life beyond high school. The skills our students learn propel them to success in college, relationships, and their careers. We offer a tight-knit, familial environment where students can grow as people while finding competitive success in the best state for speech in the country.”
