The Ronald Reagan Great Communicator Debate Series is designed to develop proactive, informed, educated, and conscientious citizens and leaders by creating and hosting a national series of high school debates across the country. The series is aimed at engaging and informing young people whose first opportunity to participate as voters will take place in the upcoming elections and beyond.

The top two winners of the Online Great Communicator Debate Competition will qualify for the National Championship in July. The National Championship will culminate under the wings of Air Force One as two of the top 16 high school debaters from across the country compete to be named “The Great Communicator National Champion.” The evening will feature a discussion on leadership, communication and civic education with former White House correspondent of the Washington Post during President Reagan's administration and current columnist and editorial advisor to State Net Capitol Journal The Honorable Lou Cannon.
