Over this debate season, the Halstead Debate Team has participated in many tournaments at several different schools. The team went against other schools to debate the topic of engagement with China. The team learned a lot about the topic, some examples are the US and China working on human rights and space. For the first time in 10 years, Halstead had debaters qualify for state competition held at Lyons. Although neither teams made it past preliminaries , Kenzie and Sara went 2-4 while Christian and Emily went 3-3. Overall, this debate season has been great and the team cannot wait for next years season!
