We’ve got training down, but I want to launch these competitors into life. It’s like the last dozen years has been pouring the footings, the cement, the launching pad, the control station. We’re just getting started. And we’re wheeling on these rockets – these young fueled up speakers and debaters – to launch into the world and light it up!
Two of our children flew to Orange County this week to participate in the country’s largest homeschool speech and debate tournament, the Concordia Challenge. It is hosted by a friend of mine, coach extrodinaire Konrad Hack, forensics coach and teacher on the Concordia College staff. His words are persuasive.
Win or lose, this is a fantastic activity. Even more, this is a fantastic community. There’s quite a future in homeschool speech and debate. If you’re a homeschooler, we can emphasize enough: do speech and debate!
There’s a speech & debate tournament coming to the Colorado Springs area, and I want YOU to come help judge! Judging tournaments is fun — you get to see young people training their minds for action — an activity that many people can’t wait to do.
I believe every homeschooler in the country should be doing speech and debate. If you can make it to the Rocky Mountain Classic to judge a round, flag me down. You’ll most likely see a Jeub kid — suited up and ready to compete — in the crowd!
I’m in Keller, Texas, attending the Lonestar Tournament of Champions. This is an opportunity for our kids, but every family in the country can take advantage of the opportunity for a fantastic deal on introductory resources.
I had the privilege of meeting Josh McDowell and his son, Sean, yesterday at Focus on the Family. The place is crawling with high school debaters this weekend, and that’s something that gets us adults pumped up!
We sure hope you join us in beautiful Estes Park for the entire week of activities. Let me count the ways for you.
