The Portland Urban Debate League assists Portland-area schools in forming debate programs, running workshops for students and teachers, providing financial support, and conducting competitions. The PUDL believes that through debate, students learn critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills. They discover their passion for learning and become empowered to succeed in the classroom. It is the vision of the PUDL that all youth graduate from high school as engaged civic leaders with expanded college and career opportunities. Once again, Lindsay Hart is proud to sponsor their efforts.
