Barton Debate Team

All 6th-8th graders are invited to join the Debate Team, and students are welcome to come on board at any time during the year.  75 students joined us at the outset and more have signed up since! 

The Urban Debate League sponsors the tournaments, which are held at local colleges. Other teams in our league include Highland Park and Murray middle schools in St. Paul, and Andersen Open and Sanford in Minneapolis.

Augsburg College is very interested in promoting debate and is offering free tuition for four years - an equivalent of $120,000 - to students who debate for four years in high school.

The debate team meets Wednesdays after school October through March, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
