Come Support the Debate Team
The final Greater Boston Debate League Tournament is Saturday, April 9th at CRLS. Come check out our debaters (grades 6 - 8) discuss immigration surveillance and drone surveillance. The debate topic remains the same all year. Debates begin around 9AM and finish around 2PM, followed by an awards ceremony. Previous debates have been held at Brandeis University and in Boston. This tournament is hosted by us in Cambridge so it should be easier to come out and support the team. Hope to see you Saturday, April 9th!
