Join Us Fun & Informative Virtual Event Demonstrating the Power of Debate!

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, provides academic competitive debate to 1,000+ students in the Twin Cities.

We are proud to present our 9th annual Mayors’ Challenge Debate Fundraising Breakfast: The Great Water Debate. This event will be hosted virtually by Augsburg University on Monday, December 13th, 2021.

Four of our debaters from Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Roseville school districts will face off in two teams, articulating arguments on how we steward one of our greatest resources – water.

Our VIP panel of judges (and you!) will pick the most persuasive team.

You will also see how the MNUDL creates new opportunities for our students to be champions – both in and out of the classroom.

Governor Tim Walz (Invited) and Minnesota First Lady Gwen Walz will host the Governor’s table. Mayor Melvin Carter, Mayor Jacob Frey, and special guests will judge our debate. You have a chance to join them as a VIP judge with your sponsorship!
