At the end of the school year are the National Championship Debate Tournaments!  These include the Tournament of Champions, the National Speech and Debate Association's National Championship, the National Debate Coaches National Championships, National Catholic Forensics League National Championships.  See below for a full description of each national tournament! Many of our top debaters have qualified for these championship tournaments. However, the cost of travel are prohibitive and the vast majority of our debaters and schools cannot afford such travel. But thanks to the support of Kirkland & Ellis, we are able to host a national qualifying tournament to offer scholarships to the winning top teams in policy debate and public forum debate so that they can attend these National Championship tournaments.  Thank you!  Click here to learn more about Kirkland and Ellis! As a result our top debaters have the resources to travel nationally and to win nationally.  Each year the New York City Urban Debate League has at least one team that has qualified to the each of the National Championships and we expect this year to be no different!! Good luck to everyone at the Kirkland and Ellis National Qualifier on Wednesday!
