Hey LT Debaters! Do you like the t-shirt that Bea & Meredith are wearing? If so, thank Ahmad (I stole his idea)! You too will receive a shirt once we are allowed to gather again. Hopefully we can have a debate celebration this summer, but if not, as soon as we can gather safely. The seniors received their shirts in acknowledgement to their accomplishments and contributions to LT Debate. So when you have a moment please send Bea, Lillian, Meredith, and Shane a note of appreciation. Not only have they been great teammates for four years, they also, raised the bar for quality and selfless leadership as team leaders.
Harper College Debate Camp
Harper College is hosting a VIRTUAL/ONLINE Debate Camp for all current and future ICDA members. The dates and registration costs are listed on the flyer (the fact it is virtual is not listed on the flyer). TWO LT students will receive scholarships for the entire cost of the camp and any other LT students who register will receive $50 off the Harper registration/tuition costs.
Interested debaters should email Mr. Swiontek firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP to add their name to the list for scholarships. Financial need and/or early response will be considered when determining scholarships. ALL who register will receive $50 off registration. If the cost is prohibitive to your family, please let Mr. Swiontek know via email. Thank you.
To receive the the ICDA scholarship or discount, students need to provide the following in their email to Mr. Swiontek:
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
Congressional Debate offers students the chance
- to debate bills they created themselves
- to learn about important issues
- to learn to speak on both sides of an issue
- to meet debaters from all over the Chicago area and
- to become an expert at "speaking on your feet."
We have a lot of fun being a team, meeting other school debaters and traveling to local and state tournaments! Students have joined as Freshman but have also waited until their Senior year to go out! If you like to talk--this may be the club for you. Another like-minded club is Model UN, click here to check them out.
