Jefferson student advances to national debate tournament

Jefferson High School junior Bella Phan will compete at the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) 2018 National Tournament next summer.

Phan qualified at the district tournament earlier this month, placing first in the House category of Congressional Debate. Junior Amelia Miller was named third alternate.

The Southern Minnesota District Tournament consisted of three House chambers and one Senate Chamber. In all, five students qualified for the national tournament.  

This marks the seventh consecutive year a Bloomington student has qualified for the national tournament in Congressional Debate.
