Chicago Public School Middle School Debate Tournament Event:
We teamed up with Chicago Public Schools, Department of Academic Competitions and Chicago Debate’s Middle School debate students for an amazing event.
We were able to share our story and connect with 200 middle school students along with watching two middle schools debate our topic: “Fighting against racism and under-representation school’s reading curriculum.” The middle schoolers did an outstanding job. We awarded each debater a The Pierce Twins Ultimate Prize Pack along with donating our diverse middle school book collection to both schools. In addition, we provided every event participant with a copy of a book on our reading list: A Good Kind of Trouble by Lisa Marie Ramee.
We really enjoyed this event! We were so inspired by the debaters’ key points and everyone’s positive comments in the virtual chat room. THANK YOU for supporting us and our mission!!!
