Competitions

Congratulations to all our competitors! We’ve had 5 competitions this fall: SoCalMUN at SCC, Cal State Fullerton, The “Jack Howe” at Cal State Long Beach, Orange Coast College, and Irvine Valley College. No other team in California has even attempted to do this elite level of competition. But what is more important is that every one of the students started as a nervous beginner only a short time ago.

We won Outstanding Delegation as the only high school team and top team at SoCalMUN, a college only MUN conference, 1st place (undefeated 5-0) in Policy debate at OCC, 1st place top speaker in Policy Debate at OCC, 1st place in more than 10 speech events at OCC, 1st place in novice high school POI (won by a 7th grader) at the Jack Howe @ CSULB one of the biggest and most difficult competitions in the US, a 6th grader won #3rd place in Novice high school extemp at the Jack Howe, we won more than twice the awards of any other team at Cal State Fullerton, and two top speaker awards at IVC.

Our elementary students win against middle school competitions, our middle schoolers win at high school competitions, and our high school students win at university level events. It’s early October and we are off to a great start.
