The Chesterton Speech and Debate team finished its ten-hour trek to Kansas
City, Missouri for the National Forensic League National Tournament. After
scouting out the city and the locations for the competition, the team
registered at the Kansas City Convention Center. While at registration, the
team participated in the National Forensic Leagueís first ever service
project; a Numana program to help feed Haitians dealing with the effects of
this winterís earthquake.

spending over an hour working on the project, the program had already
reached the 300,000 mark. Tomorrow begins competition for Chestertonís 15
student contestants. With all events featuring over 200 competitors,
students will have to be in the top 60 just to advance to the elimination
