High School Forensic Students to Participate in Florida Senatorial Debate

Posted on October 17, 2012 by Corey Alderdice
Immediately following the October 17th U.S. Senate debate, in which incumbent Florida Sen. Bill Nelson (D) faces Rep. Connie Mack (R), Nova Southeastern University will be hosting a statewide live webcast show featuring instant analysis and perspective about everything from “who won?” to how the debate may affect voters’ decisions. Sponsored by NSU and Florida Blue, the webcast show will be moderated by Kevin Corke, former White House correspondent for NBC News, and will include interviews with prominent political leaders, journalists, NSU President George Hanbury, representatives from both candidates’ campaigns, and star high school debaters.

It is vital that we promote a healthy dialogue about how to best build a better future for our state and country. As such, we’re looking to high school forensic students to join us online for the live webcast show. By participating through the online portal, high school students will learn about the political process – helping to form the next generation of Florida’s top minds. Top questions and comments from the high school online portal will be presented live on the air and many students will receive prizes for top participation. Also, the online portal presents a great way for Florida speech and debate teachers to provide additional class credit to contributing students.

In an additional effort to interject high school students into the process, the final segment of the post-debate webcast show will feature the analysis of two prominent high school extemporaneous speaking students, Cypress Bay High School’s Isabella Paretti and University School’s Daniel Greene, an addition to an audience filled with 60 local forensic students. The post-debate special webcast will be streamed LIVE for high school students at http://4n6.mobi/TuK2ax and for the general public on most Florida newspaper websites.
