Real Debates, Real Policy

A project of the Seawolf Debate Program and Alaska Dispatch News

Arguing Alaska

The Arguing Alaska Debate Series is an initiative that was started by the Seawolf Debate Program and Alaska Dispatch News to promote positive community discourse on topics of extreme policy importance to the Alaskan community. Debates occur between members of the community such as policymakers, academics, and specialists. Proceeds from the tickets of each event go to support the Seawolf Debate Program and its robust commitment to service and competitive excellence.
 
Each debate is made possible by the generous support of partners in our community. We offer the opportunity to businesses and organizations to sponsor a debate, content, and media related to the debate. In exchange for your generosity we provide your company with sponsor acknowledgement and a high degree of visibility to our community.
