Hawkers Make History- Bozeman High School Speech & Debate Team

Join the Bozeman High School “Hawkers” Speech and Debate team for an evening of inspiring performances and an intimate talk with former team member and Emmy Award-winning producer Per Saari (“Big Little Lies”). The evening’s festivities will also include live music, a complimentary dessert bar sponsored by Wild Crumb and Sweet Pea Bakery, a cash bar with wine and beer, and a big-ticket raffle.

The event will be held on May 17 at The ELM from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $40 for individual seats.

This fundraiser is a unique opportunity to learn about Per Saari’s star-studded path from Hawker to Hollywood, working with Robert Redford as an executive at his production company Wildwood before partnering with Nicole Kidman as co-founder of Blossom Films (“Big Little Lies,” “Nine Perfect Strangers”). All proceeds go toward sending 31+ Bozeman High students to the National Tournament in Phoenix in June, as well as funding an inaugural trip to Tanzania this summer to launch a Pan-African Speech and Debate League. BHS students and coaches will teach African students research methods, writing skills, and competitive debate in a two-week intensive camp, culminating with a multi-school Speech and Debate tournament.

The BHS Hawkers are currently three-peat state champions and finished 11th in the country at last year’s national tournament among more than 5,000 high school students from nearly 2,000 schools.
