Debate Team

Debate Team

As one of the consistently top performing teams in the Northwest New Jersey Debate League, our focus is to increase student awareness of domestic and foreign issues, and to encourage members to hone their argumentation and presentation skills, as well as to emphasize the importance of research in finding evidence to support well thought out arguments. Through workshops, practices, and competitions against other schools, we have placed in the top two teams in the league the last three years in a row. If you're willing to work hard to continue this winning streak and you like to persuade others through powerful arguments, then you need to join the Mount Olive Debate Team!
