CASSC Hosts Forensic Speech and Debate Tournament

On Saturday, February 4, 2017, the Catskill Area School Study Council held its second Forensic Speech and Debate Tournament in Fitzelle Hall on the SUNY Oneonta campus. The tournament is one of a regular series of three tournaments hosted by CASSC. Forty-eight students from eleven school districts participated in Saturday’s tournament. We were happy to have members of the SUNY Oneonta faculty and student body volunteer as judges.

The Forensics Program offers students and advisers training and experience in the art of speaking and delivery as well as the opportunity to experience public speaking and debate. Three competitions are held each year on the SUNY Oneonta campus. Students compete in a variety of events including reading of prose, reading of poetry, memorized drama scenes, Lincoln-Douglas debate, Public Forum debate, and extemporaneous speaking on current event topics and limited preparation events.

Trophies are awarded to the winners in each category at the varsity level, and medals to the winners at the junior high level, at each tournament. The top two placing teams at the end of the competition also receive a “sweepstakes” trophy for their school.  The first place trophy for overall junior high performance went to Mount Markham, with second and third place going to Oneonta and Sayre. The first place trophy for overall varsity performance went to Mount Markham, with second and third place going to Walton and Hancock respectively.

it’s all about PAINT

Fine Arts Project Space Gallery,
February 27 – March 15
Opening Reception, Thursday,
March 2, 5-7 pm

Exhibition by fourteen painting students, Madison Blodgett, Alexandra Sakoulas, Carly Warner, AJ, Richard Page, Anna Torri, Aurora Parkinson, Kirstie Connon, Shelby Terwilliger, Robert Fisher, Marykate Regan, Sara Lapell, Anna Vanderpool and Kathryn Polletta.

The student’s wrote about this combined effort.  “it’s all about PAINT, an unlikely combination of mediums form a dynamic collection of student works that explores the materiality of the paint.  Created in two separate studios, the brighter watercolor and larger and more saturated oil paintings are finally brought together in one space.  The installation employs the strategy of juxtaposition as an attempt to form a dialogue between the painterly mediums, from their application to the intended effects.  Based on shared ideas and love of painting, the students not only engaged in the process of collaboration and creation, but bridged the difference between chosen mediums.”
