After a solid year of use, our website DID grow substantially, just not in the way we anticipated! Like virtually everything else, the COVID-19 pandemic really threw off the time we would normally spend updating the site (April & May). That being said, the pandemic did really stretch our thinking with this site!
Over the past year, here's what we're celebrating as new additions to this ambitious project:
So what's on the agenda this year?
We still want to get a volunteer page, student page, judge page, and curriculum page established. But honestly, that's probably going to be on hold for a while longer.
As the world of education continues to change, we'll use this website to organize our Speech & Debate community. We don't know exactly what that looks like just yet -- needs were emerge as the pandemic continues -- but we expect a frequently changing calendar and (potentially) hosting or supporting virtual tournaments will be a thing!
Stay healthy everyone!
Created in 2019, this website is a collaborative, community-based project. Creation, maintenance, and updates are handled by a small group of volunteers from the EastMO NSDA District Committee, the GSL Board of Directors, and the MSHSAA District #4 Committee. Parts of the website are going to be more developed than others. We welcome your feedback about broken links, improper formatting, or missing information! Use the "About this website" link to learn more and how you can help us make this a better resource for coaches, teachers, students, and judges!
