• Big Sky Speech and Debate seeks to be open and welcoming to as many students as possible.  Like Track and Field, there are a wide range of events for competitors, including 8 Speech events and 4 Debate events.  Speech and Debate is considered a Montana High School Association sanctioned competitive activity.  All students will have the opportunity to participate and compete, and up to 42 students are able to make the Varsity team in any given year.  Our goal is to help our team members embody our motto, "Raise the Bar", individually, as a team, as a school, and in our Missoula community.
