Middle School 50 Debate Team


Middle School 50 Debate Team

$15,130 raised since Nov 14, 2018

We are a passionate, hardworking, and socially conscious debate team who debates in both English and Spanish. In June 2019, we made it to the highest levels of middle school debate in the country, finishing in the top four at the National Speech and Debate Tournament National Championships in Dallas, Texas. Our students debated in both Spanish and English, challenging the English-only norms of the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) in both the content and the delivery of their arguments. We argued that bilingual pedagogy is key to dismantling the legal/illegal construct that lies beneath immigration policy and to disrupting the metaphorical borders that govern the competitive debate space. We teach students that debate is about more than wins and losses - it is about empowering their voice and making change in their communities and the world. We need your support to help us compete again at Middle School Nationals this June in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
