KHSSL MISSION STATEMENT
The Kentucky High School Speech League is the oldest high school organization in the state of Kentucky. Crafting a community of support, we promote the growth, education, and experiences of educators and students in the Commonwealth in the practice of communication arts. KHSSL 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 BOARD OF DIRECTORS STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION:
The Kentucky High School Speech League is committed to fostering an inclusive learning environment in which all Kentucky students regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or socioeconomic status receive equitable access and opportunities to learn, engage, express, and excel in speech and debate activities. We value the unique and shared strengths of the experiences of our members and seek to strengthen the voices of our students by cultivating a strong sense of belonging in a safe, equitable, and inclusive speech community.
