My name is Drew Chambers and I am an NFCA/Stoa alumnus, now attending Wheaton College. I wanted to contact Ignite to let you all know of what I think is a fantastic opportunity for high school speech & debate competitors!
In high school, I had the privilege of competing in the national mock trial league, in addition to other styles of forensics, and I can definitely say that doing so made me a more well-rounded communicator. After competing in high school I joined the Wheaton mock trial team and have so much enjoyed my team competing in college.
This October our mock trial team is hosting a mock trial camp for high school individuals or teams! Our team is ranked 13th in the country (out of 650 teams) and #1 in Illinois and the camp will be coached by our experienced competitors. The camp cost $120 per individual and includes two days of coaching, all meals during the camp, and a t-shirt; a really fantastic value especially compared to some private debate coaching or summer camps. All proceeds go to fund our team travels during the competitive season.
I would encourage you to check out our brochure here and please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns!
Thank you so much,
