December 3 Tournament Topic Announced

The CT Middle School Debate League’s first competitive tournament of the year will be held on Saturday, December 3 at Smith Middle School in Glastonbury. The motion will be:

This House would make voting in US elections compulsory.

Please remember that Proposition teams may narrow the topic as long as they still give Opposition teams enough grounds upon which to argue. This year we’ll award trophies to the top five teams and speakers and 3-0 teams will earn pins. We’ll send out an invitation the week before Thanksgiving.

Dues Reminder

We ask participating schools to please pay $50 dues before the end of the calendar year. (Schools may attend one event before paying dues.) The CTMSDL 2016-17 Dues Form has directions regarding whom to make the check out to and where to send it. If you’ve already paid dues, thank you!
