Debate

  • Debate is a competitive and exciting event where students learn how to debate and argue important issues. Warren Buffet, the second richest man in America, says that being able to effectively argue a position makes you 50% more valuable to employers (and colleges). This makes sense, because once we can organize our thoughts and speech enough to persuade, we can have a better understanding of the world and ourselves. Past SLP debaters have won national tournaments, gone to Ivy League schools and became nationally recognized lawyers, politicians and salesman. Students are welcome to come to a practice to see if they want to join.
