Interested in debate?
Interested in debate; tired of adults making inept decisions; do you struggle with the important issues; is it 'education, education, education' or do you believe it is 'the economy stupid'; do you say 'yes we can' more than Obama, are you interested in making a stand and making a change.
Everyone has to start somewhere, start today after school with model united nations club. Everyone is welcome and you could get the opportunity to debate at Halcyon MUN.
