Should reptiles be pets? Should the Olympics include video games? Should the US adopt a guaranteed minimum income level? These are just a few of the topics middle school students debated during the English in Action Middle School Debate Championship Tournament.
Grace Flynn, Abhi Aitha, and Akshat Juneja were specially invited to join debaters from 33 schools from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Virginia, Maryland and Colorado. They made up part of the 279 debaters who converged at Hackley School in Tarrytown, NY to participate in this annual Debate Championship tournament.
