MSQI Tournament #3 Results

Thank you everyone for attending the Middle School Quality Initiative (MSQI) Debate Tournament #3!  25 schools, over 108 debate teams, and over 200 debaters participated in the tournament - our largest MSQI tournament yet!  First, thank you so much to the Middle School Quality Initiative and the NYC Department of Education for making these debate education opportunities possible.  Second, thank you to our hosts (again!) MS 45 - Thomas Geordano Middle School! Third, thank you to the Bronx School of Science Debate Team for bringing so many judges and volunteers.  Finally, thank you to all our judges, volunteers, students, coaches, teachers, and staff for making this tournament possible!  The debate topic was on physician assisted suicide and students had the opportunity to debate both the Pro and the Con perspectives over three rounds of debate.  There were also fantastic workshops after Round 3 featuring admissions to the specialized science high schools, public forum debate skills, case building skills, crossfire skills and Student Congress. Thank you to all our workshop instructors.
