DebateAble Tournaments offer exciting and unique opportunities for elementary students to participate in online debates against peers from across the country. Debaters are teamed with members of their club to debate a prepared topic. Each team argues two rounds, the Affirmative in one and the Negative in the other. Judges provide feedback to every debater and tabulate scores using Debateable metrics. All of the debaters are honored for the skills and courage they demonstrate by presenting their arguments. Top scoring debaters and teams, and round winners, are posted after each event.


We hope you had fun at the tournament! We had so much fun watching you debate, support eachother and refute!

Before we list results, we want to take a moment to acknowledge our amazing judges. They are all bright and compassionate volunteers with a shared passion for empowering your children. They prepare and show up on a Saturday morning to support young debaters by listening, providing feedback and scoring. Some judges have been engaged with DebateAble for years, others are newer to our organization, and we could not do this without them all. Thank you, judges.

As is often the case. many of the scores were remarkably close, only a point or two away from each other. Out of all of the amazing debaters who participated today, the seven top scoring individual speakers and teams are listed below. Huge Cogratulations to our Top Scorers!!!!

Scroll down to the next section to see the teams that won each round. Great job debaters!

Finally, we congratuate every debater for all of your hard work and for raising your voice, listening to your opponents, supporting your teammates and bravely thinking on your feet.  Coach Andres, Michele, Linda, Sarah and I are incredibly proud of each and every on of you. We hope to see you again! Keep debating!!! -Coach Elizabeth
