Description

Youth interested in debate will have the opportunity to learn the craft of Public Forum debate, including how to build a solid case, present compelling arguments, and leave opponents speechless during grand crossfire.  After attending the two-week Summer Debate Academy, youth will have the skills and confidence to compete against like-minded peers in a culminating tournament. 

Participating in debate teaches youth to express their thoughts clearly, appreciate multiple perspectives and constructively resolve arguments with peers and adults.  Debate also increases critical thinking, research, writing and public speaking skills -- all of which translate to greater school success.  The Summer Debate Academy is free and open to students entering grades 7-12. ASAP will provide breakfast and lunch, as well as tokens for students to travel to and from the academy.
