• Welcome to the Mount Markham Speech & Debate team page. The team competes from October to June of each year and travels regionally throughout New York and Pennsylvania. Each year culminates with the opportunity to compete on the national level in locations such as Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Sacremento, Louisville, Washington, D.C., and this year, Milwaukee.

    The Mount Markham Speech and Debate team is an active member of the following organizations.

    • The New York State Forensics League - Region 7
    • The National Catholic Forensics League - Leatherstocking Forensics League and Albany Diocese
    • The National Speech and Debate Association - Iroquois District

    Each of these organizations offers our team members a range of resources and opportunities for growth and competition.  We are proud of our team's growth over the past several years.  We currently field a team of 20 plus members and are continuing to grow.  

    Thank you to all of our supporters who have helped the team.  We couldn't do it without the support of the Mt. Markham community, teachers and family.
