Melissa High School seniors, Anna Gressett and Connor Sale, are the first Melissa students in school history to advance to the UIL Congressional Debate State Meet, after placing second and third at regionals.


Per the UIL, congressional debate contests model the legislative process of democracy, creating a mock legislative assembly competition among student contestants. As part of UIL Congress, students draft legislation, research real-life bills and resolutions from a docket, prepare speeches, deliver formal discourse on legislative pieces, and cast votes.

Anna and Connor will compete at the state meet in February. The Melissa High School Speech and Debate program is led by Kyle Brenner and Brenden Dimmig.
