The award is given to less than 2% of all students nationwide who have earned the Superior Distinction degree in speech and debate. All-American honors are given to the top 25 students who earned the most points in the association’s Honor Society.

Points are earned through a combination of competition and service. In order to win the All-American Award a student must have competed at the National Speech & Debate Tournament at least once. Students must have a GPA of more than 3.7 and demonstrate outstanding leadership and character.

The National Speech and Debate Association was founded in 1925 to provide support and recognition for students participating in speech and debate activities.
