Nashville Debate Leaguehttp://www.nashvilledebateleague.org
Nashville Debate is a program designed to provide MNPS students with opportunities to participate in policy debate in competitive interscholastic tournaments held throughout the school year. The Nashville Debate program is based on the "urban debate league" model that is successful in numerous other cities. The program provides a structure and support for policy debate activities for Metro Nashville Public Schools. This translates to comprehensive training for students, personalized coaching assistance, and local opportunities for competition. Each year, the debate season culminates in a championship tournament in which students compete for the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC for the National Association of Urban Debate Leagues Championship Tournament.
