KCPS Kids Shine During City Debate Championships

Debate Kansas City

Join us as we celebrate all of our students who earned trophies during the 2021 DEBATE-Kansas City championships, a virtual event held on Feb. 27-28:

African-Centered College Preparatory Academy-Lower Campus eighth-grader Solomon Naraine garnered a first-place finish in the middle school division. He out-performed competitors from several other schools from across the region during the virtual event. Solomon worked hard all year to prepare, including participating in the school’s oratory and essay contests. The debate championship event required him to spend 10 minutes writing an argument about whether vaccines should be mandatory. The debate judges also praised Solomon’s coaches, AC Prep teachers Edith Reese and Rosalind Jordan.

The 11-member Foreign Language Academy team took home the overall middle school sweepstakes first-place trophy. They are coached by FLA teacher Cameron Mount.

Lincoln College Preparatory Academy sophomore Sophia Herrera took first place in the DEBATE-Kansas City High School Open Student Congress Championship. Sophia and other members of the school’s team debated mock legislation as intensely as if they were elected officials. Lincoln Prep also earned the DEBATE-Kansas City High School Junior Varsity and Novice Policy Debate Championships. The team is coached by Charles Palmer.

Congratulations to all the hard-working, talented KCPS students who participated in this tournament!
