On September 28 and 29 CSULB's Forensics Program, in conjunction with the Department of Communication Studies and the College of Liberal Arts, is hosting the Jack Howe Memorial Invitational, a two-day speech and debate tournament for high school students.
More than 250 CSULB faculty, students and staff are coordinating the event for 1,200 high school students, making it one of the largest speech and debate tournaments in the State.
As a qualifier for the National Tournament of Champions — the most prestigious end-of-season national tournament for high schools — the Jack Howe Memorial Invitational promises to showcase the finest speakers and debaters competing on the high-school level.
Campus faculty and staff are invited to watch (or judge) the tournament, which runs from 8 am to 10 pm on September 28 and 29. For more information, contact Nick Russell, Director of Forensics, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
