March Madness was the theme for the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association tournament hosted this weekend by the Los Alamos Homeschool Speech and Debate Guild.

The 12-member club competed against students from Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Farmington in the tournament, which featured the topic, “Should the United States significantly change its foreign policy towards India”.

Seven speech categories were offered at the tournament judged by volunteers from Los Alamos, White Rock and Espa^ola.

The local club was established two years ago and this is its first year hosting a tournament. Speech and debate is designed to help participants speak clearly, think logically, learn effective argumentation and help students learn to win and lose graciously.

The Los Alamos Christian Church furnished their facility for the event.
