As a booster organization, the Friends of Kingwood Debate raises funds to help cover the expenses involved in getting students to compete in Speech and Debate tournaments hosted by the National Speech and Debate Association and Texas Forensics Association locally and nationally. We believe that the more students have the opportunity to compete in tournaments against quality opponents, the better prepared they are to advance in higher education. Kingwood debaters have represented our community at prestigious tournaments such as the Harvard Invitational in Boston and the World Schools Debating Championship in Thailand. Our program is recognized across the nation and world, and that honor stems from the opportunities that have been afforded to our competitors through our partnership with Friends of Kingwood Debate. Friends of Kingwood Debate provides travel support in getting students safely to tournaments and assists in financing tournament entry fees and supplies. FOKD invites participation from any family or organization who wants to support the next generation of communicators and critical thinkers. It is our goal to reduce the cost burden on students so that all students may participate regardless of their financial situations. Please consider supporting Friends of Kingwood Debate and help us develop the next generation of world-changers.
