As you all know, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely as we plan for the 2020 Urban Debate National Championship Weekend. Our ongoing conversations between our staff, board, site hosts and leagues have led us to cancel the 2020 Urban Debate National Championship and Annual Dinner. We did not reach this conclusion lightly. The Urban Debate National Championship is our flagship event and the Annual Dinner is our largest organizational fundraiser. We share the heartbreak and disappointment of our students who were looking forward to their national championship in Dallas. However, student and community safety are our top priority.
NAUDL will still recognize all UDNC qualifiers and celebrate all of our honorees, including the Debater of the Year, Coach of the Year and Alumni Ambassador cohort.
We will also work to recognize and bring visibility to our 2020 Annual Dinner sponsors. This will happen across printed donor stewardship pieces, virtual and social media platforms and the NAUDL website.
Please look out for these mentions and notice of our Virtual Paddle Raise.
