2021 Debate EXPO

Celebrating and Elevating the Urban Debate Network

NAUDL 2021 National Debate Expo 

October 1-3, 2021
Virtual Event
Details & Registration*

Established in spring 2021, the NAUDL Debate Expo is an opportunity for NAUDL to promote a flagship event centered around community and growth, and not just competition alone. As such, this unique event combines a round-robin competition with coach and student workshops — as well as league-led engagement events. Specifically, it will include:

  • A Learning Track for debaters newer to the activity eager to grow their skills.
  • The Return of our Round Robin with the addition of two judge panels. The winners will be awarded the Leonard A. Gail Award.
  • Coach Professional Development aimed to provide tools for growth and model argument preparation activities.

We look forward to celebrating and elevating debate at the Expo!

*Note: This event is open to registrants from urban debate leagues affiliated with the National Association for Urban Debate Leagues.
