About the Workshop
The 2-week Lincoln-Douglas Debate Workshop provides the student an intensive, skill-specific experience on the 2015-2016
high school Lincoln-Douglas debate topic. We have created a format uniquely ours for teaching value debating to high school
students. The Lincoln-Douglas section will be an independent workshop, featuring instruction in philosopny, value debate strategy
and tactics, persuasion and public speaking skills.
$1,500.00 - Price includes room, board, tuition and the cost of photocopying done
within the various squads of the workshop, but it does not include individual photocopying by a student.
We have assembled an AWESOME staff this summer.
