Urban Debate National Championship
Attendees at the 2017 Urban Debate National Championship in Chicago
The Urban Debate Middle School National Tournament was born from a recognition that the younger scholars in Urban Debate work just as hard as their older compatriots and deserve a high quality, national, end of season competition to recognize excellence.
This tournament is designed around the middle school students, giving them the best judges, tournament staff, and competitive experience just like their older counterparts, instead of as an after-thought like at other competitions.
The first Urban Debate Middle School National Tournament was held in Washington D.C., at Hardy Middle School April 13th and 14th, 2019
We're proud of our qualifiers:
