 2023 HBCU National Speech and Debate Championship

February 23-26, 2023

On the campus of Virginia State University


Hosted by:

Virginia State University,

The Richmond Forum Speech & Debate Initiative, and The National HBCU Speech and Debate Association



The National HBCU Speech and Debate Association and its partners are excited to invite you to the 2023 National HBCU Speech and Debate Championship hosted at Virginia State University, February 23-26, 2023.  This tournament represents an opportunity for HBCU students to compete in a welcoming environment and build skills that will last a lifetime.

The tournament will feature IPDA Debate, NPDA Debate, and ten of the American Forensics Association Individual Events; this tournament will also feature Slam Poetry and Interviewing events. 

Through the sponsorship and fundraising of our partners, this competition will be presented with no entry fees, which includes awards for the event winners.

The skills that are learned in speech and debate are valuable tools for students in the classroom and beyond the walls of their alma mater.  For this reason, The National HBCU Speech and Debate Association will seek to promote forensics education in all HBCUs.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Sandra Wheeler.  We are all very excited about this tournament and look forward to hosting this event.
