Speakers Guild

Speakers Guild is a club that prepares its members to compete in tournaments hosted by the Baltimore Catholic Forensic League (BCFL) against students from schools throughout and near Howard County. Speakers Guild offers students the opportunity to develop and practice their public speaking skills. In our weekly meetings, we prepare for and discuss upcoming tournaments. Depending upon your interests, you could compete in one of the many competition categories that the BCFL offers, including three types of debate: Lincoln Douglas, Policy, or Public Forum. Eight different speaking events: Extemporaneous speaking, Oratorical Declamation, Oral Interpretation of Literature, Original Oratory, Impromptu Speaking, Drama, Duo Interpretation of Literature, or Children’s Literature and/or a category in Student Congress.
