WHAT IS THE SPANISH DEBATE LEAGUE?
The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, serves 9 districts across the Twin Cities Metro by providing the resources schools need to have successful debate teams. In 2014, Spanish-speaking students and coaches took our policy debate format and transformed it into the Spanish Debate League.
In this program, all rounds and judging are held entirely in Spanish. Tournaments are held on weeknights April-May. Both middle and high school students compete in our tournaments, with a divisions to suit every level of Spanish mastery.
JUDGES EARN $55 PER TOURNAMENT!
Judges must be fluent in Spanish, but no prior judging experience is necessary to volunteer! Volunteers receive a short training and all necessary materials prior to the start of tournaments. Please attend our event to learn more!
