Debate Club consists of several pairs of students who debate a topic as a team at statewide tournaments. Each month, we work on a new topic determined by the national debate group.  MMU sponsors a home tournament each year and participates in tournaments around the state from October through February, when we finish our season with the state tournament in Montpelier.

A typical debate consists of 3 rounds of debate lasting about one hour each. It is also a progression of matches based on the two-person team record; the winners are matched against the other winning teams in order to determine first, second and third places, as well as first, second and third place speaker awards. The first award goes to the strongest team based on the judges' ballots. The speaker award goes to the individual with the most points in the speaking category, also determined by the judges. We meet one or two mornings each week to prepare for
the tournaments which typically are Friday afternoons or Saturdays.
