WE ARE BACK IN PERSON! Join us for the 5th annual Bluebonnet World Schools Debate International Tournament in Houston, Texas! The Bluebonnet Tournament will be hosted by Audra Langston-Grand OaksDebate coach. For years we have drawn the best debaters across the world to the Bluebonnet World Schools Debate Championship. We were the first to introduce the first fully international across all time zones online tournament at the start of the pandemic. This year we are inviting you back in person to our beautiful Texas high school. Our tournament has been proven to educate and grow strength of teams in attendance and those that attend to observe.
