Congratulations Skinner West Debate Team!
The Skinner West Debate Team participated in the Chicago Middle School Debate League's Tournament One for the 2021-2022 season on Saturday, October 30.
The overall topic for the year is: 'Water Resources', and the cases being debated at this Tournament were 'Fracking' , 'Agricultural Runoff', and 'Water Infrastructure'.
About 115 debaters across 58 teams from 6 schools competed at the tournament, but 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 won 1st place in 4 out of 6 award categories.
2) Skinner West won 54% of all possible awards at the tournament (31 out of 58).
3) Audrey P. won the Robin Williams award (Judge praising a debater's performance/conduct).
