Missoula County Public Schools hosted the National Qualifiers for the Montana District’s Speech and Debate competitors Feb. 12-13. Approximately 400 kids and more than 1,000 community members descended upon Sentinel High to choose the competitors that would represent Montana in Kansas City, Mo., this June. Twenty-one schools brought their speech and debate teams to this last tournament of the season.

 In the end, 38 Montana students qualified to travel to Missouri to face students from all 50 states. Nick Hart and Alex Geiszler of Big Sky High School, and Jim Thomas, Kyle White, Richard LeCoultre, Haiden Mohl and Luke Gehman of Sentinel High School will be among the Montana delegates.

Meleina Helmer and Libby Oliver are head coaches from Big Sky and Sentinel, respectively.

The group must raise approximately $8,000 to go. They will be hosting a variety of events to achieve this goal.

If you would like more information about the fundraisers the group will hold, or want to know how you might help, please contact Libby Oliver at Sentinel High School at 728-2403.
