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.

  • During Black History Month we'll be recognizing one of our team's black alumni each Sunday. This week we're hearing from alum and current coach Raja Archie. Raja competed in policy debate in middle and high school and Congressional debate in her senior year; now she coaches both events. If you aren't a policy or Congressional debater and already working with Raja, you can come say hello at a Congress or Policy practice. 
  • I need a coach and at least two students who are available this Wednesday evening from 6:00pm to 7:30 pm to staff the Speech and Debate table at the Incoming Freshmen Activities Fair in Beardsley Gym. We obtain the most email addresses for prospective students at this event, so we definitely need a presence. Please email Jeff if you are able to work the event, and I will send details for set up and procedures by Tuesday afternoon. 
  • 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.
