The ABU Education Fund is proud to announce the first debates of its 2018 Debate Series. 

This first round of debate announcements includes two Democratic primary debates in Salt Lake City and the Republican primary for Wasatch County attorney.

The ABU Education Fund is pleased to once again partner with the University of Utah’s John R. Park Debate Society in hosting the majority of this year’s debates. The Debate Society has been a premier debate organizer in Utah for decades. The two organizations have teamed up for the past four years to offer debates in races for the Utah Legislature, State School Board, and last year’s 3rd Congressional District special election.

While the ABU Education Fund is the logistics organizer for the debates, all matters relating to format, substance, and moderation of the debate are controlled exclusively by the John R. Park Debate Society.
