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.

  • Our next team meeting will be after school on Tuesday, December 12th, in room E-212. We will distribute team t-shirts, prepare fundraising mailings, meet the Director of Forensics at Oakton Community College, discuss the next phase of our season, and get to know our teammates a little better. We ask that students bring in three to five names and addresses of extended family, professional colleagues, or family friends; the students will address envelopes on Tuesday, and the team will mail out the pamphlets.
  • Please take a few minutes to complete this survey: Speech and Debate Mid-Year Feedback
  • We will have an officers meeting after school next Monday at 2:15.
  • Racial literacy seminars are meetings for our students to improve their racial literacy, identify the way racism shapes their worldview and influences their behavior, and develop strategies to disrupt and combat racism. We are holding our next racial literacy seminar Monday, 12/11, at 4:00 pm in N-125. All students are welcome to attend; white students, especially team leaders, are expected to attend. A reminder that our homework from the last seminar is to learn about the people that lived in this area before colonization. Also, a short reading is attached to this email; please read it before attending next Monday.
  • The shirts cost $15; if you cannot afford a shirt, order one anyway and the team will cover the cost for you. Order using this form: T-Shirt Order Form. We will collect payment digitally next week and at the team meeting.
  • 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.
