On Saturday, January 27, SCDS middle school students took part in the final debate tournament of the year as part of the Pacific Northwest Middle School Debate League coached by Grade 8 Language Arts Teacher and Grade 7 Drama Teacher Brian Crawford. The Seattle Country Day School team placed 2nd overall in the tournament with 8th grader Abby A. placing 4th overall. There was a final round between the top two teams and Abby A., Amelia W., and Elena W. represented SCDS well in this final debate showdown.
Grade 8 student Holt W. placed 1st among SCDS debaters, an award the tournament gives to the top speakers of each school (chosen from the students who did not place in the top 10 overall). Read more about the Debate Team here.
