Greenwich Library's Student Leaders' Debate program this Saturday, December 12th will allow middle school students and underclassmen in high school the opportunity to learn about debate. We will provide a lesson for the first half hour on a skill used in one or both of the two kinds of debate that high school Connecticut debaters participate in.

For the rest of the time, we will either break off into teams or will stage a debate with the students, depending on the size of the group. This opportunity will give future varsity-level debaters the skill-set, confidence, and understanding necessary for success. For local students in grades 8-12. 

Presented by Shannon Rubin. The program will run from 11 am to 1 pm.
