Tuscaloosa City Schools Middle School Debate Invitational

2019 — Tuscaloosa, AL/US

Dear Middle School Debate Community,

   On behalf of the Alabama Debate Society, and Alabama Campus Forensics, I would like to invite you to the first ever Tuscaloosa Middle School Debate Tournament, hosted at the University of Alabama, on Saturday November 16th.  As the Executive Director of Forensics and the Director of the Alabama Debate Society, I am thrilled to foster the growth of middle school debate within our region, and want you to know that my debate students, my administration, and the greater Alabama community will be working hard to ensure a tournament that is accessible for younger students, offers meaningful feedback and instruction, and meets the high standards of excellence we set for ourselves here at the Capstone.  As this is our first year offering this tournament, we will be organizing the tournament as a public forum debate tournament for middle school students (grades 6th-8th) only. We sincerely hope you will join us for this one day tournament, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me either through tabroom.com or through my email: butle027@ua.edu. I am excited to see you on campus!
