The Ronald Reagan Great Communicator Debate Series


For more information, visit the Competition Information page.

The Ronald Reagan Great Communicator Debate Series was founded to develop engaged, informed, and conscientious citizen leaders by hosting a national series of high school debates for students enrolled in grades 9-12. The debates search for students who can effectively use logic, evidence, and personality to communicate their ideas, just as Ronald Reagan did throughout his life.

Competitors who qualify for the National Championship receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Southern California. The three day trip will include a private tour of the library, dinner under the wings of Air Force One, and a chance to meet an extraordinary group of young leaders.

Engaging in civil discourse is a hallmark of American democracy, and this debate series encourages you to join the conversation on issues our country faces.

Thank you for your interest in the 2022 Season of Great Communicator Debates! More information posted on the Competition Information page. To contact the Great Communicator Debate Series Coordinator, please email Ms. Chris Adams at
