Debate Competitors Rank Top 48 in the State


Thursday December 4, Harold Jackson and Ashley Blevins traveled to the State Capitol in Austin to compete in the new UIL debate contest – Congressional Debate. There were six preliminary chambers with up to 30 students in each. The top 4 students from each room were selected to be in the “super final” round, with the 5th – 8th place speakers going to a “consolation chamber.” Ashley Blevins participated in the top finals chamber, and Harold Jackson competed in the consolation chamber, making both students among the top 48 in the state.
