On January 24-27 we had 128 families descend on the Little Rock area for the 2018 Arkansas Diamond! We had 224 competing students – in both senior and junior events. Our largest debate event, Team Policy, included 86 students, while Lincoln Douglas hosted 63 and Parli 68. For our speech events, Cold Reading was our largest group with 81 competitors – but each event had enough students to go to a finals round this year! Approximately 175 community and alumni judges joined the 100 parents to round out our judge pool. This was truly a group effort, and an overall success!
