The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, provides academic competitive debate program for middle and high school students in the Twin Cities Metro.

We’re seeking caring adults with speech & debate experience to serve as middle school debate judges!

• Tuesday 03/05 from 3:15-7:15 PM
