Tune into Livestream to watch the top high school students in the country compete for $35,000 in scholarship funds. On Saturday, October 27th, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center will host the National Championship of The Ronald Reagan Great Communicator Debate Series. Eight outstanding high school students from across the country have won their Regional Championships, and been invited to compete for the National Championship under the wings of Air Force One. The topic for this final debate is designed to align with the 2012 Election, and to provide an opportunity for high school students to prepare themselves for the rigors of engaged and informed citizenship.
As part of the National Championship festivities, former Los Angeles Mayor, Richard Riordan, will serve as our final round judge and share his insights on the importance of civic education as part of a discussion following the final round.
Watch it here from your home, classroom or office via Livestream.
