Rebel Debate Institute
Twenty-five local high school students visited the UNLV campus for an intensive two-week session training session in policy debate research, strategy, theory, and practice in late July 2013. The students who attended ranged in experience from pure rookies without any prior policy debate experience to advanced debaters with three years of prior experience entering their senior year of competition. The students worked closely with the coaching staff and members of UNLV’s Sanford I. Berman Debate Forum, and the institute culminated in an end-of-camp tournament and awards assembly. The RDI was covered by the Las Vegas Sun and KNPR.
