Debate Time

YWAA is planning its fall debate competition, the 20th annual, featuring teams from area high schools and highlighting college teams from Yale and other Ivy League schools.

Debate Night, 2016, is tentatively scheduled for Friday, Nov. 4.  Ardsley High School, which competed last year at Byram Hills School, has agreed to act as host school.  (In recent years, Hackley School and Blind Brook have also been hosts.) Competition details, including the roster of high-school and college teams, will follow.

Last year, Yale defeated Princeton. At Hackley in 2014, the Yale squad defeated Brown and Princeton.
