Nationals 2017


BIRMINGHAM NATIONALS 2017



Sophia Skwarchuk received a gorgeous trophy 
in recognition of being a 
FOUR-TIME QUALIFIER



  • Noah Love placed 7th in the nation out of 256 LD Debaters! He automatically qualifies to return to nationals next year in Florida.
  • Tristan Phillips made it to the top 25 (out of 333) in Informative speaking, just missing semi-finals and auto-qualification.


Flathead had another incredible showing this year.

In addition to this year's accolades, FHS has had a DUO finish 11th in the nation, auto-qualifying for the following year (Wyatt Dykhuizen/Parker Kouns), and two 6th place finalists in Impromptu speaking (Wyatt McGillen & Sophia Skwarchuk), all within the last three years. Way to go, team!

The Leading Chapter Award is given in recognition of outstanding accomplishment. According to the NSDA: 

"This coveted honor, based on student participation, is the highest level of recognition you can receive from the Association.  Only one school in each district earns this designation each year, and each school must wait at least five years before being eligible again. Out of more than 3,000 member schools nationwide, your school is one of only 110 to receive the ​Leading Chapter Award."


Congratulations, Team!
