Are you in the speech and debate in high school? Now you can begin earning college scholarships for your participation in speech and debate as early as the 9th grade, even if you don't plan to pursue it in college. Austin College, Regis University, Oberlin College and 232 other colleges offer up to $5,400 in scholarships for every year of speech and debate. Plus, if you're in a leadership role, you may be eligible for an extra scholarship of up to $3,375 per year!
