Sponsor DUDL!



Support the 1000 Great Debaters!

Do you have a passion to reform local education?

Suburban and private schools have long recognized that debate programs effectively prepare students for the future. Debate assist students in the developing a positive identity and coping skills, as well it can lead to better attributes necessary for success in high school, college, post-graduate programs, and ultimately for a wide variety of career paths.

Research at Georgetown University has found that “skills taught by debate are important to successful leadership in virtually every field imaginable. Clergy, teachers, lawyers, judges, doctors, business leaders and others report that debate teaches crucial skills which were an important part of their success.”

Urban Debate Leagues are built around a Tournament calendar.  UDL Tournaments focus student preparation, practice, and learning in citywide academic debate competitions.  It is not an exaggeration to say that the academic benefits that a UDL brings to a school system and its students are propelled more directly by Tournament competition than by any other mechanism within the range of urban debate programming.  Tournaments bring together all of the debaters in the League to compete over a two day period in structured and formal argumentation over public policy issues – this season, the U.S. federal alternative energy policy.  They motivate dozens to hundreds of hours of reading, research, and argument preparation on the part of each student debater in the weeks leading up to them. During the Tournament itself, debaters engage in a full day period in verbal and mental competition, culminating in an exciting and affirming Awards Ceremony on Saturday evening.
