Middle School Debate

Six Moore County, NC middle schools competed in the 8th annual ESU Middle School Debate at the Sandhills Community College on March 8, 2016.  Over 116 middle school students took part in this competition as debaters, timekeepers and alternates.  Twelve members of the Pinecrest High School, Pinehurst, NC national award winning debate team served as co-judges.  The winners are decided based on speaker points, which are awarded on each team's ability to enunciate, present evidence, and refute the opposing teams arguments.  For the middle school debaters, this is their Super Bowl. The Middle School Debates have been sponsored by the Sandhills Branch of the ESU for the past 8 years.  Chaired by Sally Bold Frick, the competition is made possible by the participation of 20 ESU members who serve as judges each year.
