Gunster is proud to once again support the Eighth Annual Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) Debate Initiative, taking place on January 26, 2023. Join Gunster Chairman and former U.S. Senator George S. LeMieux for another year of this dynamic event.

The #DebateBroward Initiative is a partnership between local businesses and school-based debate programs within Broward County. Now in its twelfth year of implementation, the Initiative includes over 200 schools and 15,000 students. Every public middle and high school in addition to over one hundred twenty elementary schools and three alternative schools now have debate programs. The Initiative is grounded in research that shows the demonstrable impact participation in debate has on student achievement. All proceeds from this event are used to support BCPS debate students in their competitive debate endeavors.
