ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Members of an elite student debate team from East Mountain High School will soon pack their bags for an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City to compete as national finalists in a global debate competition April 21 for a grand prize of $10,000.
The team Hannah Linder, Gina Sanchez and Tiffany Delgado advanced to the “Elite 8” round of the International Public Policy Forum, a contest sponsored by the Brewer Foundation / New York University.
“I’m excited to return to this level of the competition,” Sanchez said. “When I competed in the New York rounds as a sophomore, I learned so much. Now as a senior, I feel significantly more prepared to advance even further in the competition!”
