NAUDL will be hosting our inaugural National Debate Exposition on April 15-18, 2021. This virtual event will include a championship level round robin and an I RESOLVE demonstration debate in conjunction with a series of workshops to engage debaters, coaches and program staff who have participated in debate virtually this season. We invite educators, coaches and professionals to present seminars, workshops and lectures related to the theme: Celebrating and elevating the urban debate network.

We invite proposals on a wide-range of subjects, including debate techniques, best practices, college and career guidance, curriculum development, training and more. Presentations should be approximately 60 minutes long and be directed to one of the following audiences: high school debaters, coaches and league/or program staff.

Proposals are due by February 26, 2021 and will be evaluated on a rolling basis with all applicants notified of their acceptance by March 12, 2021. Any questions about this process should be emailed to sarasanchez@urbandebate.org.
