You’re Invited! Judge Debates & Network with Students on May 21st!
The MN Urban Debate League is looking for financial professionals that identify as female or gender non-conforming to judge at our annual Financial Literacy Debate tournament this year!
You do not need debate experience to be a judge. We will provide training and opportunities to ask questions prior to the tournament, and will also be available to support you during the tournament.
Financial Literacy Debate is an innovative program that supports students’ public speaking, critical thinking, and financial literacy skills and knowledge. Our program works to close the gender gap in the financial sector by building the leadership and financial knowledge of high school participants that identify as female or gender non-conforming, through debate. Over the course of the initiative, students meet with their coach after school, learn about the topic area and fundamental economic concepts through an engaging curriculum, hold practice debates, and participate in a competition with other schools.
Our tournament this year is tentatively scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 21 from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm at Augsburg University. The tournament schedule will be as follows:
· 9:30 am: Judge training
· 10:00 am: Judge three debate rounds about the benefits/harms of cryptocurrency
· 1:00: Lunch and networking between students and financial professionals
· 2:00: Awards Ceremony
· 2:30: End
Sign up at our website to be a part of our event at Augsburg University on May 21st from 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM. https://mnudl.augsburg.edu/volunteer-opportunities/
Thank you for supporting our students as they build their financial literacy skills and explore career pathways in finance!
