The WUDL was named the 2017-2018 Outstanding Urban Debate League by the National Association of Urban Debate Leagues. This award is given to the Urban Debate League that distinguishes itself each year through growth, innovation, and competitive success. We are thrilled to be recognized for our hard work, but must give the credit to the wonderful students we work with. As fitting, one of the students (accidentally) took the trophy home after the NAUDL dinner.
The WUDL grew faster more than any other urban debate league, vaulting into the mid-sized leagues this year, our third in existence. Not only did lots of students compete this season, but they stuck around and achieved in the classroom and beyond.
