Each year SDS holds both the Stanford Invitational high school tournament and the Stanford National Forensic Institute summer speech & debate camp for the benefit of high school speakers and debaters nationwide.

An update regarding the Stanford Invitational and SNFI: 

We anticipate that the Stanford Invitational 2023 will run online in the first weekend of February in partnership with Stanford Student Enterprises. Please stay tuned for further updates. 

Regrettably due to Stanford Covid-19 and administrative policies, the Stanford National Forensic Institute will be cancelled for summer 2022. We look forward to welcoming back attendees for Summer 2023.
