Debate Team

The South High debate team is comprised of a large and diverse group of students competing at the local, state, and national levels.

In 2021, the South High Public Policy Debate team of Gabe Chang-Deutsch and Clara Conry ended the year ranked #1 in the nation TWICE in the coaches poll; claimed their second consecutive state championship; and made it to the semi-finals in the national Tournament of Champions.

As members of the Minnesota Urban Debate League, we are dedicated to its mission to "empower students through competitive academic debate to become engaged learners, critical thinkers, and active citizens who are effective advocates for themselves and their communities." 

Additionally, students in debate can get college scholarships through Augsburg University or other schools nationwide.

All students are encouraged to join. No experience necessary!  

Come to our introductory meeting at the beginning of the school year, or drop into practice Tuesday or Thursday.
