MSQI Debate Results - January 2015
2014-2015 MSQI Debate Tournament #2 Results Where: Brooklyn Technical High School
When: January 10, 2015
Resolution: Resolved: The benefits of nuclear power outweigh the potential risks.
We had quite an exciting MSQI Debate Tournament #2 at Brooklyn Tech this Saturday. Our debate community was proud to welcome Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCrae who visited in the morning. Mayor de Blasio gave a moving speech about the power of debate and its impact on student achievement, and several of our debaters got a photo op with the Mayor and First Lady.
We also had our biggest turnout yet - over 160 students from 18 MSQI schools participated. Regardless of wins and losses, all students were winners by engaging in a rigorous, literacy-based, academic activity for 8+ hours on a Saturday.
Special congratulations go to the following students/coaches/schools for outstanding performances at Saturday's tournament:
