1st Plce - 2018 Depauw Summer High School Ethics Bowl National Invitational
Congrats to our student Beau and his teammates from Polytechnic High School
(Jan. 2018 @ Harvard Westlake Tournament)
We took 3 girls Lauren P., Alison L., and Stephanie H., to their first debate tournament. But this wasn’t just any local competition. Several of the schools are ranked in the top 10 in the US or World. And the judges were the best in the world.
At Harvard Westlake, one of the top debate competitions in the US, our shy kids took 9th and 10th place speaker awards and 5th place overall. We only lost one round, to Polytechnic, the 5 best K-12 school in the US. And of course, we train Poly students too.
- Our students are great story tellers and debaters
