The Westside Debaters are a one-of-a-kind groundbreaking team at Westside Elementary in Roanoke, Va. The team is made up of fifth-grade students. Established four years ago, The Westside Debate Team helps students to establish and perfect confidence, articulation and presence while speaking. In April 2013, The Westside Debaters were named the recipients of NSBA’s 2013 Magna Award. They are currently researching and exploring the issue of the 60th Anniversary of The Brown v. Board Supreme Court Ruling. Their debate is centered on the theme, “Brown v. Board: A Complete Success or Incomplete Task?” The young debaters have used this thought provoking subject matter to pay homage to this monumental event in history. During this session, Mr. May will share information about their recent debate related to 60th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education.

Presenter: Jeff May, Program Facilitator, Roanoke City Public Schools, VA
