Recently, the Agape Debate Institute located in Manhasset, Long Island made the trip to the New York State Debate Coaches Association Championship held at Bronx High School of Science.
Debaters Nicholas Leung, a student at Nesconset's Great Hollow Middle School, and Bradford Lin, of Great Neck North Middle School, won the state championship at the annual debate tournament. They are both 8th graders and competed in the middle school policy division. The amazing thing about this dynamic duo is that they competed mostly against students, who have debated for two or more years. However, this is their first year debating, and they won the coveted title of “State Champions”.
These two students have taken the debate world by storm this year. They have gone undefeated in every New York Urban Debate League tournament in which they have competed. Additionally, Agape Leaders Institute is proud to announce that this amazing duo will represent the institute at the 2014 National Forensics League championships held in Kansas from June 17-21.
