Cougar Classic

The Cougar Classic is AHS/SILSA Speech and Debate team’s home tournament. As the tournament hosts, we are responsible for judging the student events, feeding the students and the judges, awarding the winners, and showing off AHS/SILSA’s amazing Speech and Debate team. The Cougar Classic typically takes place the third week in November.

It takes ALL our Speech and Debate parents and students to run the Cougar Classic. To have a successful event we need judges and event volunteers.

Judging the Cougar Classic

As the event host, AHS/SILSA is expected to provide the bulk of the judges. Typically, we need between 20 and 22 judges.
