COACHES MAKE DEBATE POSSIBLE
2024 Coach of the Year Nominations
The Coach of the Year award recognizes that teachers who coach debate are essential to the Urban Debate Network meeting our core mission: helping students to become more academically successful — and civically engaged — through the support and rigor of debate. This award honors that work.
We are asking each league to nominate one coach for the award. The winner will be honored in conjunction with our Coach Appreciation festivities at the Urban Debate National Championship (UDNC) in Evanston, IL. The UDNC is scheduled for April 11-14. The Coach of the Year will also be recognized and invited to speak at our Annual Dinner on May 10 in Miami, FL.
