  • Annika took 14th Overall Speaker!
  • For Ciara, Annika, Grace and Ariel it was their first ever debate competition and they all did incredibly well!!
  • Grace and Ariel have only been debating for a few weeks!!!

These kids did an amazing job. It was a very complicated resolution especially for middle schoolers(!):  This House believes that the United States should curtail free speech rights in order to combat terrorism.  They should each be very proud!
