The Charlestown High School debate team hopes to send two of our top debaters to camp in Texas this summer!
We've had an amazing season, taking third place overall at the city championships and earning the top speaker award in the varsity division. We also WON the junior varsity division at the Harvard Invitational tournament, a competition that draws schools from around the country. Next year we want to be even better.
Zai and Tye are some of our hardest working team members. They're at every practice and every tournament, pushing themselves and supporting their teammates. Going to camp will allow them to learn alongside some of the country's best debaters and coaches, but they can't do it without your support.
Charlestown High School is a public school in Boston that serves almost exclusively low-income students of color. Our debaters deploy college-level texts to argue about everything from government policies to the way race, class and gender operate in society. In recent years our graduates have received full-ride scholarships to schools including Boston University, Brandeis and Hamilton. Debate is a game-changer.
Thank you for your generosity -- we are incredibly humbled and grateful for the support the community has shown in the past.
