The New York City Urban Debate League (NYCUDL) reaches 1000 milestone!   Over 1000 New York City students have competed in the New York City Urban Debate League this school year!  This was historic considering in 2011 the prior debate league for the city had to close its operations after the recession.  But thanks to New Yorkers and supporters of urban debate - we have rebuilt the city's debate league and it is now larger and more successful than it has been in history.
