Our Awards & Accomplishments

Our greatest accomplishment was making history as New York City's first elementary school speech and debate league.  When we were founded less than one percent of elementary school students and schools had access to competitive speech or debate. Additionally, our staff have received numerous awards in the field of education, debate, innovation and entrepreneurship.
