The Riverside Speech & Debate Radio Play is a beloved team tradition featuring an old-fashioned radio production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and other tales of the season. This year, the play has been adapted into a virtual format and will be available in multiple installments. Our program exists because of your support. Thank you!
Riverside High School, in Greer, SC, has one of the nation's largest and most competitive speech and debate programs. Our program continues to compete in virtual tournaments during the 2020-21 school year. Our over 50 students, representing almost every demographic imaginable in a public high school, compete in a rigorous practice and tournament schedule that runs from September to June. Most competitions require travel to other states, and that gets expensive. In addition to practicing and competing, students raise money by selling fruit and coupon books, performing in plays and showcases, washing cars, and hosting spirit nights. The team's dedication to practice and fundraising has paid off in state championships, national trophies, and college scholarships. More importantly, our students develop communication skills and a base of knowledge that will serve them for a lifetime. Your support makes this possible.
