            Student Recognition

            Student members of the National Speech & Debate Association compete throughout the school year, but tournament wins and Honor Society points are just part of the recognition received from our organization!

            All Americans

            Each year, the top student point earners in the country中国体彩官方app苹果 are named All Americans. The All American award is based on a combination of competitive and service points, of which no more than 25% of the point total can include service. In order to qualify, a student must have competed once at Nationals. Following the National Speech & Debate Tournament, the 25 students with the highest total points in our Honor Society receive this recognition. No application is required to receive this award.

            Congratulations to Daniel Timor from Valley International Prep in California for being named the top point earner in 2018-2019! View the complete list of recipients here.

            Academic All Americans

            The Academic All American award recognizes high school students who have earned the degree of Superior Distinction (750 points); completed at least 5 semesters of high school; demonstrated outstanding character and leadership; and earned a GPA of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent). NOTE: If the GPA is between 3.5 and 3.7 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent), students also must have received an ACT score of 27 or higher, or a New SAT score of 1300 or higher. Students may apply through August 1 in the year they graduate. For example, if a student graduates in May 中国体彩官方app苹果, they have until August 1, 中国体彩官方app苹果 to apply for the AAA Award.


            If a student is eligible, coaches will see a yellow box with “AAA?” under the Awards column on their Student Roster.

            District Student of the Year

            Each NSDA District has the opportunity to name a District Student of the Year award, presented to a graduating senior who best represents the tenets of the Association’s Code of Honor: integrity, respect, humility, leadership, and service. Nominees must also demonstrate strong academic credentials and a commitment to the speech and debate community. District winners must be selected and reported to the national office by May 1, 中国体彩官方app苹果.

            Each year, six students who win the district award are selected as finalists for the William Woods Tate, Jr., National Student of the Year award. Finalists interview with an esteemed panel of educators during the National Speech & Debate Tournament, and the National Student of the Year is announced during the National Awards Assembly.

            William Woods Tate, Jr., National Student of the Year

            The 2019 William Woods Tate, Jr., National Student of the Year is Joanna Bai from Millard West High School in Nebraska. Joanna was selected by a panel of coaches for her character, passion, and commitment to inclusion.

            IN THEIR WORDS | “Speech and debate taught me how to listen and connect with people. I learned how to show up for others and give them a chance to be vulnerable in a safe space. I think speech and debate teaches us a lesson that we aren’t taught other places at such a young age–that despite having so much to learn in life, what we’ve learned so far is valuable and meaningful to the world. We’re not just kids who talk on the weekends. Speech and debate gives us a place where we’re encouraged to use our voices to do more, to find our heartbeat in the world and chase after it.”

            Joanna Bai
