Columbus City Schools Gifted & Talented Department held its Winter Middle School Debate Tournament on Friday, December 8, at Capital University. Fifteen teams from 8 schools sent participants to argue the topic of the federal government increasing the minimum wage. Two divisions including nearly 75 students competed in three rounds of debate, which were judged and scored by volunteers from Columbus City Schools, Capital University, the English Speaking Union, and others in the community. Additionally, about 45 new debaters from seven schools came to participate in a debate workshop in order to prepare for their first debate competition in the spring.
