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. With volunteers from NHS and the students of Kenston High School, 41 students participated raising a total of $1,300. The money will be used to help with the cost of sending students to Nationals and other tournaments.
