Tournament Dates

A LAMDL debate tournament is a rigorous academic competition. In teams of two, our students argue for and against public policy proposals on issues ranging from science to economics to politics and government. For many, tournaments are a rare opportunity to connect intellectually with their peers and to have their ideas about important issues considered seriously by adults. Such an experience has a powerful effect on a student’s self-esteem and interest in education. Attending our tournaments as a judge is a great way to help our students and the league!
