Recently, we brought you a list of summer debate camps offering low-cost tuition and scholarships. Today, we’re pleased to bring you a new opportunity to reduce the financial burdens of debate. The Champion Briefs Foundation has just announced that it will be distributing FOUR $250 scholarships to debaters to use towards camp tuition, the cost of attending Nationals, or private coaching sessions.
To apply, all you have to do is go here and upload a video of yourself answering the question “How has Speech and Debate prepared you for life after high school?” along with some information about you. The deadline is May 1, so apply today!
Recipients of this scholarship will be selected by an objective committee and notified by May 15, 2014.
Here at Debate Central, we know how helpful it is to attend summer debate camp. Camps give you the opportunity to get hands-on experience, run practice rounds, research next year’s topic(s), and receive feedback from some of the country’s best debate minds. Attending camp is one of the best way to ensure your performance doesn’t slip over summer vacation. Unfortunately, camp can also be extremely expensive. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to attend a high-quality debate camp, regardless of financial means. That’s why we’ve prepared this list of camps that are low-cost, offer scholarship assistance, or both! Check it out below. [..]
Debate camp is an invaluable tool for furthering your skills over the summer. But why not combine that experience with interesting excursions, leadership training, networking opportunities with notable people in a range of fields, and the chance to earn over $20,000 in scholarships? In the Four Star Leadership program, you get all that and more. Better yet, it’s FREE for all admitted students! Ready to apply? Get more info and view the application below. [..]
We know lots of you have questions about kritiks. That’s why, beginning next week, we’re introducing a new column: Ask a K Hack!
Need help understanding Foucault, Nietzsche, or the cap K? Unsure about how to answer psychoanalysis? Want to know if Heidegger was really a Nazi? We can help!
Ask a K Hack will take your critical theory, philosophy, and kritik questions and provide you with clear, simple answers (and maybe just a little sass) designed to help you win those K debates.
We’re partnering with Eugene Wolters of critical-theory.com and have a range of super-smart people standing by waiting to answer your all your toughest kritikal kwestions. We’ll make sure the person who answers your specific question is not only a successful debater/coach, but also well-read in the literature base you’re asking about.
So, what are you waiting for? Address your burning questions to AskaKHack@gmail.com! We’ll run the first Q&A next week.
Here is a useful piece of evidence for those of you competing in CX this weekend. It details a few reasons why a new United Nations report has called Latin America the most insecure region on the globe. The card also suggests that development is necessary to combat insecurity. Affs might find this card helpful as an impact booster, while negs might use it to support alternate causality solvency deficit arguments. Find it by clicking below.
