August 1st Debate Day

August 14, 2014

August 1, 2014 was a big day for the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation. We welcomed 108 high school debate students from all over the country attending the Debate Institutes at Dartmouth to Plymouth Notch. Additionally, we had 30 home school debate students from all over the northeast along with them. The students toured the Historic Site, learned from nationally and internationally-renowned experts, and debated property rights. The top teams from DDI and the home school camp faced off in a championship round before the entire assembly, and the affirmative was triumphant in that debate.
