The Skinner West Debate Team participated in the Chicago Middle School Debate League's Tournament Two for the 2018-2019 season on Saturday, December 1.
The overall topic for the year is: 'Immigration', and the cases being debated at this Tournament were 'H-1B Visas' and 'Open Borders'.
The students did a great job against some tough competition and won the awards listed below.
Some highlights we would especially like to point out are:
1) Skinner West took 1st place in four out of the six award categories.
2) Skinner West won about one-third of all possible awards at the tournament (20 out of 64, approximately 32%).
