On February 10, 2018, STEMM hosted a middle school speech and debate tournament from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.  The competing schools were STEMM Academy, Ruckel Middle School, and Bruner Middle School.  Students competed in five different events:  oratory speech, interpretative speech, public forum debate, Lincoln Douglas debate, and congressional debate.  Many of our students here at STEMM took home medals for their events.
