1-Week Congressional Debate Workout

SNFI is proud to add a Congressional Debate program!  We're excited to bring the same professionalism and expertise developed over the past 25 years in every format of competitive high school debate to Congress.

The 1-Week Congressional Debate Workout is designed as an opportunity for students to sharpen their Congress skills ahead of the next competitive season.  SNFI strongly suggests that students enroll in the 2-Week Core Congressional Debate Program if their schedules allow.  Our curriculum is designed around a full two week-long experience in order to cover the full spectrum of relevant material.

More details on this summer's curriculum will be available in the near future.
