I want to highlight a scholarship opportunity for a competitor at the
tournament.  This is included in the invitation.

The Teach to Learn Foundation will be providing a $500 scholarship to one
competitor at the Westchester Classic Tournament who has used their own
education from debate to further someone else?s education. Ninth through
eleventh grade students can use the scholarship to attend a camp of their
choosing, and twelfth grade students can use it towards their college
tuition. The application will be released closer to the tournament, and
will be evaluated by the T2L Debate Fund Committee (http://t2lusa.me/debate
).

The application will consist of a resume, coach recommendation, and a
personal statement on how the student ?has used their own education from
debate to further someone else?s education .? Personal statements that are
inspiring will be shared on T2L?s blog following submissions. All questions
should be addressed to debate at teach2learnfoundation.org.

The Teach to Learn Foundation was established by Lakeland District Debate
alumnus, Priten Shah, in 2012 while he was debating for the team, to use
the skills he gained from debate to help others. The organization is a
501c3 non-profit that aims to increase educational opportunities. In the
past few years, they have provided over 10,000 hours of direct help to
students in every state in the country and over 10 other countries.

Teach to Learn has had a relationship with the Westchester Classic
Tournament since it?s founding. In both 2012 and 2013, the organization
fundraised successfully at the tournament, and will continue to do so this
year.

In 2014, funds will be used to support a new project. Teach to Learn is
establishing a debate fund with the mission to provide micro-grants to
students to increase debate opportunities. To further this mission, the
Teach to Learn Foundation will be providing a scholarship to one competitor
at the Westchester Classic Tournament who has used their own education from
debate to further someone else?s education. T2L hopes to inspire the same
mindset that led to its creation in other students.
