Rockefeller Center Co-Sponsors Dartmouth Parliamentary Debate Winter Invitational

The 12th Annual Dartmouth College Winter Invitational celebrates twelve years of excellence as a staple on the American Parliamentary Debate Association (APDA) tournament series. American Parliamentary debate focuses on the art of rhetoric, persuasion, and impromptu thinking by challenging contenders to five "in" rounds of debate; in each round one team presents a topic for debate and the other opposes. Teams of two take turns debating in a sequence, and alternate proposing and opposing cases until the bracket leaves a single victor. Broken into a varsity and novice league, APDA tournaments allow for debate between new debaters and veterans, helping to holistically improve each member's ability to think quickly and critically.
