Common Ground
Through Words

KSCA is a group of K-12 educators and coaches, community college and university faculty, theater arts practitioners, and college students in the field of communication.

Through its network of members, KSCA promotes the impact speech and debate has beyond the classroom.

KSCA empowers every student to tell their story with confidence in an accessible, equitable and inclusive space.

KSCA believes that a healthy future for speech and debate starts with a network of engaged, expert coaches.

KSCA Conference

Join us for our upcoming fall professional development
conference at Kansas State University.


Whether you are leading a program for the first time and building curriculum, or refreshing your activities as a veteran teacher, KSCA has member-created and member-provided lectures, videos, engagement tools, tips and tricks to continually meet your teaching needs.


Nearly every year the KSCA honors members for their outstanding service to the profession of speech and debate education at the secondary/high school level and college/university level. The honorees for both Educator of the Year and the KSCA Hall of Fame are announced each year during the KSCA conference.
