Camp One Clap Day 26: Supplemental S’mores, Expository Nationals Runner Up Rachel West

The sun is shining bright on yet another day of Camp One Clap on One Clap Speech and Debate! We have stumbled upon Day 26, which means that it is time to feast on another healthy diet of supplemental s’mores round the campfire! National Expository Finalist and Camp Counselor Rachel West is here to talk about Expository, Poetry, and a fabulous four year career in Speech and Debate on Supplemental S’mores. 🏕️👏🍫🔥


Rachel West is a four year Cheyenne East Speech and Debate competitor who graduated from East last Spring. Rachel was the National Runner Up in Expository this summer! They also placed in POI at the James Logan Tournament in California this year. Rachel is a two-time Wyoming State Champion in Poetry and a Wyoming State Champion in POI. Rachel is now attending Williamette University in Salem, Oregon, where they plan to study Environmental Engineering.

Watch Rachel's amazing Expository Speech (at NSDA Nats) about Musical Theatre and Censorship (Expository Round starts at about the 1:30 mark):


Thanks so much to Camp Counselor Rachel West for sharing some tasty Expository and Poetry tips and a whole lot of great competition advice here at Camp One Clap! It is always great to talk with Rachel, and I wish them all the best at college this fall.

We are nearing the close of Camp One Clap, but what’s on the camp agenda for tomorrow? Counselor Izzy Garcia will drop the final episode of the quite helpful and cheeky Interp Survival Guide. Also, Counselor Adrian Graham will release into the world yet another genius episode of Professor Graham and Kevin’s ABCs of Debate on YouTube.

Here's today's episode in case you missed it (I promise it is Topical):
