On May 17, the Kenston Speech and Debate team hosted a fundraiser called the Debate-a-thon. The fundraiser consisted of students competing in pairs on the debate topic of: “Science leaves no room for free will.” The fundraiser occurred in order to fulfill the requirements of a grant. If 45 high school students participated, then the Speech and Debate team would receive $1,700. The next level down would allow the team to receive $1,300 with the lowest amount as 15 students to receive $700. Almost 60 NHS and other Kenston students and parent judges participated in the event. The money will be used to help with the cost of sending students to Nationals and other tournaments.
