We would like to share with our alumni, families, and the community at large what high school policy debate is about. We will record our experiences at NFL Nationals in June, including clips and interviews on the drive up to Indianapolis; before, during, and after rounds. This project hopes to put a personal face on the struggle to maintain a national reputation in forensics for a squad that won a national championship in 1997 and strives to keep that kind of excellence alive despite the poorly understood nature of the activity and the high cost of competition. We have the equipment to video and edit our footage, we just need more funding to make the trip up to nationals actually happen. We fundraise throughout the year, but this trip comes at a time when our funds are mostly depleted. By using Kickstarter, we can turn a high school debate trip into a window on the quirky world of policy debate. Debaters and non-debaters everywhere should find it very interesting to see.
