2014 City Champs Results
The St Louis Urban Debate League (SLUDL) serves up to 200 middle and high school students and coaches in approximately 15 St. Louis City public schools by providing extra-curricular policy debate programming and debate-related opportunities. SLUDL empowers student debaters by developing skills that enable success beyond the classroom and after high school. With support from the National Association of Urban Debate Leagues (NAUDL) and the Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS), SLUDL was founded as an independent 501(c)(3) organization in 2008 and will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year. SLUDL is preparing to increase SLPS participation and to extend its services to underserved North St. Louis County schools.
The Program Director is responsible for SLUDL’s day-to-day operations and program management with an emphasis on equipping and enabling coaches to run thriving debate programs. With a passion for both competitive policy debate and student and teacher development, the Program Director will advocate for debate among students, coaches and administrators. Flexible enough to evolve with changes in the wider debate culture, the successful candidate will also share SLUDL’s philosophy that debate can and should play an important role in developing student leadership and growth overall.
