The WUDL has experienced explosive growth over the last academic year. In September, we had 45 students from 8 schools attend our tournament at Banneker High School. Last weekend, we had 90 teams from 27 schools attend, with several schools missing, or missing students due to the long weekend.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, the WUDL is dedicated to furthering our mission and spreading debate to more students in more schools. We are also mindful of our mission to bring the academic benefits of debate to the schools that would benefit from it the most. As a result of our partnership with DCPS, we are excited to announce a new partnership with Browne Education Campus in Northeast D.C.
They have recruited a coach, and are looking forward to sending students to our summer institute to kick off their program. We look forward to working with Coach Cole!
