KHSSL MISSION STATEMENT
The Kentucky High School Speech League enhances and refines students' skills in acting, speaking, listening, and critical thinking by providing an arena for extracurricular competition in speech, drama, and debate.
KHSSL hosts Regional and State meets and provides the guidelines and support to prepare students and coaches and judges for these meets.
We teach students how to win and lose gracefully with practice in grit in all that we do.
