Senior debate students honored by National Speech and Debate Association
Posted 08/30/2018 03:00PM

Congratulations to 43 Upper School debate students who earned awards from the National Speech and Debate Association for various levels (see below) of the NSDA honors society. Awards are based on academic standing and debate success, with a bonus for wins. 

Each year, these awards are given nationally to hundreds of schools. Currently, SPA is ranked 10th in the state in these awards; the next closest private schools are Benilde-St. Margaret (BSM) in 21st place and Blake in 23rd place. Nationally, SPA is #154, with BSM at #434 and Blake at #462. Given the size of SPA, the Spartans have the largest per capita awards in the state and one of the highest in the nation. 

Please join us in congratulating the following seniors:
