I Resolve Public Debate Series

"I Resolve" Public Debate Series

Be a Part of the Resolution

The debate community is a unique combination of relationships and competition, teamwork and mentorship that connects participants in a lifelong network built around researching public policy issues and solutions. However, the riveting, fast-paced tournaments at the core of debaters’ training are not often witnessed by the community-at-large. I RESOLVE showcases the power of high school debate for a public audience while exploring some of the most pressing issues in our society through the perspective, voice and values of the next generation of leaders – high school debaters.

In its pilot year, NAUDL will present the I RESOLVE Public Debate Series with five (5) league-hosted events, each one introducing a facet of the timely 2020-21 National Policy Debate Topic: criminal justice reform. Each event will be a 90-minute virtual program centered around student arguments, expert feedback, discussion and Q&A via a panel of distinguished civic and community leaders from the respective host league. We invite you to join our virtual audience of other current debaters, school district and league leaders, NAUDL and league donors, partners, and debate champions at each event.

All events in the series are complimentary thanks to the support of our sponsors.
