Send Sakshi to Debate Camp

Hello!

My name is Sakshi Garg, and I’m currently a sophomore debater at Little Rock Central High School.

I’m raising money to attend the University of Michigan’s seven-week debate camp. Their program is one of the most comprehensive and challenging summer debate workshops in the country, with dozens of lectures from the best debaters and coaches in the country as well as incredibly beneficial practice debates.

As freshmen last year, Valorie and I qualified for the National Speech and Debate tournament in Birmingham and won the State Championship in the novice division, in addition to consistently breaking and making it to the late elimination rounds of out of state tournaments. This year, as sophomores, we have also broken and placed at several tournaments out of state, including Heritage Hall, KCKCC, and the University of Texas Longhorn Classic (where we were also invited to debate in their prestigious round-robin).

But more than just winning and having fun, debate has made a significant difference in my life by giving me a voice. I have grown to become extremely passionate about debating, investing weekend after weekend into attending tournaments and learning more through this activity. Debate has taught me how to think critically and weigh decisions – skills that are key to my success after leaving high school. Our dream is to qualify for the Tournament of Champions next year, and improving our debate skills at camp will almost certainly help us achieve that!

I greatly appreciate any financial assistance you may be able to give towards this. The money will go to covering food, board, and travel.

Thank you!

Sakshi
