    Debate Hawks in Sacramento, CA - 2013 Western Novice Debate Championship

    The Monmouth University Debate Hawks received 23 team and individual awards in 2013. Next year, the team will once again compete across the country in policy debate tournaments. We want you to be part of our team! No debate experience is required. All you need is an interest in meeting fun and creative people, a desire to learn more about public policy and public speaking, and to enjoy traveling on weekends.

    In 2013, the team competed in a number of debate tournaments, including our own 3rd Annual Jersey Invitational Tournament here at Monmouth. In March, the team received seven trophies and won the Western Novice Debate Championship at Sacramento State University in Sacramento, California. Last fall, the team received team and individual awards at James Madison University and others at Rutgers University. And in 2010, the Debate Hawks were named the debate program of the year in the northeastern region of the United States.
