M93-03 - ARKANSAS STATE COMMUNICATION ASSOCIATION COLLECTION

This collection contains the records of the A.S.C.A., known as the Arkansas State Communication Association since the late 1980’s.  The A.S.C.A. has gone through many name changes, but its purpose has remained the same.  The group has encouraged speech education on the elementary, secondary, college, and university level.

The Association has sponsored two major projects since it’s founding: Speech Festivals / Tournaments, which allow students to demonstrate speech debate, and drama abilities; and the Student Congress on Human Relations, a state government simulation study involving high school and college level students.

Elected officers administer the Association.  It does not have a paid staff.

Arrangement:  This collection is divided into four series, which are further subdivided as follows:

Series I – Administrative materials

Sub-series I – State materials
