Hundreds of debate teams from across the country and world! 3 days! 11 rounds of debates! 2 hours each round! 22 hours of debates! You wont find a more rigorous academic program in the world! And you wont find any other debate program in the country more competitive than the New York City Urban Debate League! New York City teams dominated the Harvard Debate Tournament in both the Novice and Varsity divisions of Policy Debate as well as Public Forum Debate. NYCUDL schools of Brooklyn Tech, ACORN Community High School, Poly Prep and the Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice all reached elimination rounds and took some of the top awards in the tournament! The Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice made history by defeating the top debate teams in the country including the #1 Team in the country to reach the Semifinals and a bid to the prestigious Tournament of Champions.
We wanted to shout out Harvard Debate, the Buskaret Family and Brown Rudnick for sponsoring the Tournament and providing the opportunities for all NYC teams to visit Harvard, compete at Harvard, and win at Harvard! Thank you everyone!
