Pellissippi State Community College will host a debate competition for area colleges Saturday, Feb. 24, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the McWherter Building on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.
 
There will be two divisions in the competition-the novice and the open-and 22 awards will be given out to teams and individuals with the best scores. Pellissippi State has formed a team only recently, but has already received several top awards in previous competitions. Last October, Pellissippi State’s team took home the Top Community College Award for the National Parliamentary Debate Association Competition.
 
Other participating colleges include Walters State Community College, Cleveland State Community College, Tusculum College and Appalachian State University.
 
The debate competition is open to everyone. For more information about Pellissippi State, visit www.pstcc.edu or call 865-694-6400. To request accommodations for this event, call 865-539-7401 or email accommodations@pstcc.edu.
