Urban Debate National Championship

Attendees at the 2017 Urban Debate National Championship in Chicago 

The Urban Debate National Championship (UDNC) is the culmination of every competitive debate season. More than 11,000 students from urban debate leagues around the county compete for a chance to be one of their league's representatives at this highly competitive tournament. The UDNC is rotated around the country each year, and hosts the top two teams from each league.

We're incredibly proud of our qualifiers to the UDNC:
