Description: The Middle School Public Debate Program is the world's largest initiative for class and contest debating. Specifically designed to meet the needs of students in the middle grades (ages 10-14). We are committed to sound pedagogy, rigorous practice, accessible materials and meaningful community service.

Working with an experienced coaching, judging and advising team, we will accept 18 middle school students to form 6 debating groups to participate 12 classes (including training classes and tournaments).

Developmentally Appropriate - A debate format and competition process designed with experienced teachers for middle school students.

Backwards Design - Created with the specific academic and socio-emotional needs of young adolescents in mind.

Textbook Supported - In addition to free online resources, teachers and students can go in-depth to explore complex issues.

Standards Aligned - Materials and practices designed to fit current reading, speaking and listening standards.

Open Participation - Students may participate regardless of school type or location across grades 5-8.

Quality Control - Tournaments follow standardized procedures, including judge training and certification.
