BRINGING DEBATE TO THE BLUEGRASS

Our Mission

An extension of the University of Kentucky's Digital Speech & Debate Initiative (DSDI), the Bluegrass Debate Coalition (BDC) works with Kentucky schools to make competitive debate available to all elementary, middle and high school students. The BDC believes that debate increases student academic performance, enriches and expands college and career opportunities, and provides the intellectual and networking tools for youth to thrive as active, responsible leaders in their communities. We are working to achieve our mission by developing accessible educational resources, supporting the development of new debate programs, and hosting low-cost online tournaments.
