Outstanding people and highly driven

Debate Team

Our first public debate this semester will be held at Pittsburg City Hall Wednesday October 29th at 6:30pm. This semester we're tackling CA Prop 2, the Governor's stabilization proposal for the state budget. Come early because seating is limited and if the past is any indication we will pack the house!

 

As usual we'll have refreshments, stimulating conversation, and our award winning team fresh from their recent tournament in San Diego. Come learn, chat and enjoy a casual Wednesday night in Pittsburg.

 

Can't make it? That's okay, stay tuned for our next event in early December with the Drama department! Or come check us out when LMC hosts a debate tournament on Nov 22/23rd here on campus.

The Los Medanos College Debate Team is a competitive Parliamentary Debate team that travels and competes in speech tournaments across the state and country. Typically we compete in several tournaments each semester, with a national tournament during the Spring. We have public outreach and recruiting events periodically throughout the year so check back frequently for updates and follow us on twitter!
