NAUDL invites you to join the Board and Staff for its 2023 Annual Dinner in Dallas, TX.

As NAUDL’s largest fundraiser and external networking event, the evening’s program will showcase the important work of NAUDL and its 22 debate league partners. Together, we promote debate programs, curricula and events in schools across the country, impacting academic achievement — and leadership, critical thinking and civil discourse skills — for the students we serve.

Dinner attendees can expect to hear presentations from league alumni and the 2023 Debater of the Year. The Annual Dinner will include a networking cocktail reception, formal dinner, and a Paddle Raise donation auction. Questions? Contact Madalyn Messer-Brooks at madalyn.messerbrooks@urbandebate.org.
