Step 3: Payment

All schools must pay a $150 participation fee each year. You can pay online (preferred) or mail a check to our treasurer with verified delivery tracking.

In line with our mission to make speech and debate accessible to all, the California High School Speech Association is offering partial waivers of our annual $150 participation fee to qualifying schools. Applications must be received by November 1, 2023 at 5 PM PT. 

The CHSSA Treasurer is working hard to track all payments and rollovers, to verify them against the schools who have submitted their registration documents.  To check the status of your registration please click the link below, and carefully read the information at the top of the spreadsheet.
