In 2019, we implemented a separate Chicago Debates Student Application for any student who participates in debate. This application allows students to join their school’s debate team, attend practices, and participate in tournaments/debate competitions through Chicago Debates. Information from the application will allow Chicago Debates to communicate directly with you about debate programming and understand the impact of debate on your child’s academic performance.
If you would like for your child to participate/continue to participate in their school’s debate team and programs, please complete the online student application. NOTE: Students who do not complete an application will be unable to participate/continue in debate tournaments.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to partnering with you to help advance your child’s educational achievements, community contributions, and overall life success… through the activity of debate!
