The Skinner West Debate Team participated in the Chicago Middle School Debate League's Tournament Two for the 2021-2022 season on Saturday, December 4.
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 111 debaters across 56 teams from 7 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 60% of all possible awards at the tournament (31 out of 51).
