Debate Bowl hosted by Gallaudet Youth Programs

Submissions for the first ever Debate Bowl are due this Friday at midnight EST. We are welcoming qualifying submissions by both middle and high school Deaf/HoH students. You will need to send a 3-5 minute video of yourself answering the question below-

For high school students, the question is: “Should the voting age be lowered to 16 years old?
For middle school students, the question is: “Should homework be abolished in middle school?”

They will pick the top 4 in each group to move on to the next round. How exciting! 

For more information, please go to: (download the rules and guidelines manual)

The Center for Democracy in Deaf America (CDDA) and Gallaudet's Youth Programs are looking forward to seeing everyone's submissions! If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to
