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.

  • On May 19, we will be holding a mattress sale/fundraiser at ETHS. If you are even sort of in the market for a new mattress, mark your calendars! And ask around to find other people who need a mattress. More details later this month.
  • Summer camp is a great way to make new connections, learn new skills, and prepare for the coming year; it's by no means necessary, but I encourage all students to consider camp. Here are a few recommendations:
  • Evanston Scholars is a non-profit organization that improves college access and success for a diverse group of ambitious Evanston students who are traditionally first-generation college entrants, low-income students, and students of color, starting with the college admissions process and continuing through college graduation. The comprehensive, six-year program offers workshops, mentors, ACT prep, and college counseling to support students with financial and/or academic needs. You can learn more and apply to the program here.
  • Our annual banquet will take place on May 15th.
  • If anyone has photos of any of our current seniors and would like to maybe get one of them in the slideshow at the banquet, please send them Jeff's way.
  • This Thursday we will have an officer's meeting after school in N-125. If you are an officer, or would like to be an officer, please make plans to attend. We will discuss banquet plans, fundraising plans, and some projects for next year.
  • 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.
