Why debate?

Good ideas, well expressed, change the world!

Debate is one of the most valuable activities that students can participate in during high school. There is a long list of benefits students accrue from debating. Debate, like many extracurriculars, instills discipline, improves writing, impresses colleges, and fosters friendships.

However, there are two things that debate teaches more effectively than any other activity:
- First, debate teaches students how to form well-justified answers to complex and pressing questions.
- Second, debate teaches students how to effectively advocate for their answers before others. In other words, debate teaches students to find and defend the truth.

Debaters labor over not just what to say, but how to say it.

They carefully craft their arguments to appeal to a wide range of audiences. They learn how to speak publicly and professionally.

To help more students participate in high-school debate by providing the best professional-quality debate curriculum that teams, schools, and individuals can easily use, we hope to lower the barrier to accessing the transformative powers of debate for everyone.
