Elk Speech Travel Team is an additional time and financial commitment beyond the Elk Speech Team. Travel Team members register with the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) and compete in NSDA tournaments in addition to MSHSL tournaments. There will be at least one out-of-state tournament for Travel Team members as well as the potential to earn a spot to compete in the National Tournament.
There is an annual application process each spring, with the Travel Team members announced at the year-end Speech Season Banquet. Team budget and tournament details will be finalized each fall.
Travel Team individual member balances can be accessed through emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
