Evanston Township High School is a large public school located in Evanston, IL, just north of Chicago, with a racially and economically diverse student population.

Welcome to the ETHS Speech and Debate Team's website. Here you can find our calendar for the upcoming months and a description of our team. And some sweet pictures.

  • This Tuesday we will be putting on debates in Spanish in the Little Theater, periods 1, 2, and 9. In the evening, we will be putting on a showcase of speech and debate at 7pm, also in the Little Theater. All are welcome to attend.
  • Before the end of the year, I plan to have a brief conversation with every returning student to discuss goals and plans for next year. These conversations start in two weeks. Please sign up for a slot on this spreadsheet.
  • If you are graduating this year, please email Jeff to update your ETHS email address. He'll add your new email to our alumni and judging list.
  • Every August before school starts we hold a week-long camp for speech and debate. This year, our camp runs August 13-17, 9am-4pm each day. My hope is that every returning student attends this camp, even if only for part of the time. If the tuition is an obstacle, please just let us know; we want as many of our kids to attend as possible so we can have a great start to the year, and so we have plenty of financial assistance available. 
  • Students interested in policy-making or advocacy might consider the YouthQuake program at UIC; a flier with more information is attached in the weekly email. It seems like a very cool opportunity to network with like-minded students and learn about social activism.
  • To be added to our weekly update emails this year, all students (new and old) must complete the ETHS Speech and Debate Contact Info Form.
