Those who advance at the regional competitions will receive a free trip to the Reagan Library in Southern California where they will compete for awards of up to $10,000 for college. A total of $50,000 will be distributed.

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. 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. Professional debate experience is not required. The event is comprised of five in-person and one online qualifying competition. The two finalists from each region along with the top debaters from two national organizations will compete in the National Championship at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in July.

This year's topic is:
RESOLVED: Convicted felons who have completed their sentence should be allowed to vote in the United States.
