The Barkley Forum for High Schools (BFHS) has been firmly committed to supporting high school forensics since it began in 1956 and continues today to provide top-flight national competition at the high school level.

Each year, typically during the last weekend of January, over a thousand students, teachers, school administrators, and college coaches descend on the Emory University campus from 35 states to engage in a variety of forensic events.  The BFHS showcases successful high school participants in final rounds packed with large audiences and honors the high school teachers who work hard to provide a forensics education to their students.

The tournament hosts seven Speech events, Congressional Debate, Lincoln-Douglas, Public Forum, and Policy Debate.  The Speech events are Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Extemporaneous Speaking (foreign and domestic in one division), Original Oratory, Duo Interpretation, Informative Speaking, Oral Interpretation of Literature and Program Oral Interpretation.

BFHS Tournament History

In 1956, the membership of the Barkley Forum decided to host a tournament for high school debaters. Inviting high schools to debate on the Emory campus provided an opportunity for the students of the university to offer excellent debate competition and judging for high school students. The goal of honoring high school students and their teachers for their commitment to forensics achievement remains the defining purpose of the Barkley Forum for High Schools.

Speech and debate have evolved tremendously over the last half-century, and the Barkley Forum acknowledges and welcomes changes. However, some fundamental concepts that support forensic excellence remain constant, and the Barkley Forum seeks to honor these traditions. Commitment to pedagogy, dedication to achievement, and respect for the efforts of others define characteristics of a quality forensics education.


Melissa Maxcy Wade Social Justice Award

Emory University forensics has a long history of encouraging students to use their forensics skills for the greater good of our society. Both as a collective and as individual members, the Barkley Forum encourages service to others. The Barkley Forum was at the forefront of the urban debate league movement to bring debate to disenfranchised students. When middle school students expressed a desire to debate in Georgia, the Barkley Forum formed partnerships to provide those opportunities to students. The Barkley Forum for High Schools itself was originally founded as a service to the forensics community in Georgia.

While we value and reward competitive success at the Barkley Forum for High Schools, we also value service to others, and we wish to reward and recognize a student competing in our tournament who has a passion for social justice work and a desire to continue to use his or her gifts and skills to serve others in his or her community.

Any forensics competitor who is active on his or her squad and who will be attending the 2024 Barkley Forum for High Schools may be nominated for the award. Nominations can be from coaches, judges, or other members of the forensics community who familiar with the student's work.
Nominations should include:

  • The name and school of the nominee
  • The reasons for the nomination, preferably including anecdotes and examples of the student's service
  • The name and affiliation of the person submitting the nomination

Nominations should be emailed to by January 4, 2024.  Finalists for the award will be announced during the week prior to the tournament, and the award will be presented at the Opening Ceremony, which will be released on January 25th.

In addition to a framed award, the award recipient will receive a $250 cash prize to be directed to the charitable organization of the recipient’s choice and a $100 cash prize for the recipient’s/nominator’s debate program. 

2024 recipient: Melinda “Michi” Synn – Canyon Crest Academy (California)


Key Societies

The Barkley Forum for High Schools remains one of the most prestigious events in high school forensic competition, annually receiving hundreds more applicants than space allows entry.  The last day of the tournament features a series of exhibitions of the various forensic arts performed in packed auditoriums on the Emory campus. This day culminates in the Procession of the Keys, the Hall of Champions Debate, and the Final Awards Assembly.

In 1964, the Barkley Forum, under the direction of Glenn Pelham, former coach of BFHS winner Cairo High School (1959), began to invite successful high school coaches into an honor society known as the Key Society. The most prestigious presentation made by the Barkley Forum is the presentation of the Gold Key. Each year the members of the self-perpetuating Key Society invite a select number of debate teachers from schools across the nation into membership in a ceremony held during the Barkley Forum for High Schools.

The Barkley Forum awards keys as trophies as part of a unique tradition passed down by former Director Glenn Pelham. The Barkley Forum Trophy is a larger key cast from an antique brass key hidden in Georgia before Sherman's March to the Sea in 1864. The original key was found and donated to Emory University's Barkley Forum by Susan and Thomas Glenn Pelham. Nashville attorney Larry David Woods, a distinguished alumnus of Emory and former President of the Forum and of the national forensics fraternity Delta Sigma Rho-Tau Kappa Alpha gave a grant to have Keys cast each year from the original key.

BFHS Member Schools

1963 marked the first year that the Barkley Forum awarded memberships, also known as chairs, to high schools, and since then, two hundred seventy-eight schools have been awarded membership. Memberships are another way of honoring quality performance. Schools are considered for membership after at least two years of better than average performance. Schools maintain active membership by not missing more than three consecutive BFHS tournament and by not having more than one year in a row of substandard performance.

Benefits of Membership: The school is automatically allowed to enter the maximum number of entries per school per event as long as they register by the deadline. The coach of the school can be considered for membership in the Gold Key Society (i.e. to be "a Key coach"), and the school receives an engraved plaque in recognition of high quality forensics performance.
