NYC Debaters Win Big at the NYC Invitational at Bronx Science!

<p>Huge shout outs to NYCUDL debaters and schools and the Travel Team for winning big this weekend during three days of intense debates. Bronx Science hosts the NYC Invitational each year – one of the largest, most prestigious and one of the most expensive tournaments in the world.&nbsp; Usually dominated by some of the nation’s top private schools – this year, NYC students and schools dominated the tournament. NYCUDL students and schools won more awards than any other program in Public Forum Debate!!&nbsp; Many winners were also in our middle school debate program!&nbsp; And a huge shout out to the entire UDL Team – alumni, coaches, Board Members, schools, staff, volunteers – all working together to provide our students with the best debate education opportunities. And finally a huge shout out to all our Great Debaters for challenging one of the top tournaments in the nation.
