The 2021-2022 national speech and debate season was brought to a close a few weeks ago in Louisville, Kentucky at the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) National Tournament.  This season, like the academic year, had its complications because of the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, but some parts of the country resumed in-person competitions and there were steps back to “normalcy.”  And, whether online or in-person, the national circuit continued its operations and the Extemp Central National Points Race came back.

To review the year, Extemp Central compiled the top seven stories from the national circuit, which we hope our readers will enjoy.
