The Georgia Debate Union has partnered with the Digital Debate Camp to expand access and opportunities for high school debaters within and beyond the state of Georgia. It services high school policy, public forum, and Lincoln-Douglas debate formats.
The Digital Debate Camp, created by Georgia Debate Union assistant coach and PhD Candidate in Communication Studies Steven Murray, is an online debate camp aimed at lowering entry barriers for students who want the benefits of debate camp but who struggle to afford the cost of attending.
More information about the Digital Debate Camp can be found here:
The early application discount for the 2015 Georgia Debate Institutes has been extended until May 15.
Pay your deposit ($250 for public forum, $500 for policy) by May 15 and enjoy a $100 discount of the tuition price of the camp!
We hope to see many of you in beautiful Athens, Georgia this summer. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the camp.
Friends and Colleagues,
The University of Georgia Debate Union is pleased to invite you to the Sixteenth Annual Bulldog Debates that will be held in Athens, Georgia, on February 27th through March 1st, 2015. We wish to make this year’s Bulldog Debates an enjoyable and educational experience. Last year, our tournament drew 100 teams from the Southeast. We are a TOC Qualifier in policy debate at the Semi-Final level.
Congratulations to Shunta Jordan a member of the University of Georgia Alumni Association’s 40 Under 40 class of 2013! Shunta is a highly successful debate coach and teacher at Pace Academy. We are excited that an alumnus of the debate program has been recognized for her contributions to the interscholastic debate community and the Pace academic community.
I would encourage UGA debate alumni to nominate other members of our community for awards like this that you identify in UGA mailings. Brent Culpepper was the person who did the work to craft Shunta’s case for the committee. The 40 under 40 winners are prominent graduates have made an impact in business, leadership, community, educational and/or philanthropic endeavors. They've demonstrated dedication to the University of Georgia and its mission of teaching, research and service.
The ceremony is scheduled to take place on September 19th at the Georgia Aquarium.
