Jacksonville, Florida – Novice debaters Maia Ambrister and team mate Ebonee Maxey kept their winning streak alive at the first Duval Urban Policy Debate Competition at Florida State College of Jacksonville (FSCJ) this past weekend, just edging out Butler Middle Debate Team, Adrian Lord and Leroy Harrison III who took home the 2nd place trophy.

Twelve teams went head-to-head for three rounds of policy debate on the topic “the federal government should increase funding for Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (food stamps) for persons living in poverty in the United States”.
