Joshua High School has qualified four students for the 2020 University Interscholastic League State CX Debate Meet on March 20-21 at The University of Texas at Austin.
Qualifiers include first place team Camryn Carey and Vivian Bivens and second place team Cail Keeling and Gabby Wood. The students qualified for the state meet by placing first and second at the UIL CX Debate 5A District 14. The meet was held at Red Oak High School on Jan. 31.
Camryn Carey was also awarded Top Speaker. Congratulations also go out to novice team Eden Batkowiak and Claire Boedeker for placing sixth in district.
“UIL debate competition motivates students and provides them with practical application for the skills they are developing,” Joshua High School UIL State Debate Director Jana Riggins said. “This year’s debate topic prompted students to research and form their own thoughts and opinions on the real-world issue our government is challenged with: Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially reduce its restrictions on legal immigration in the United States.”
