THE RONALD REAGAN PRESIDENTIAL FOUNDATION AND INSTITUTE
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation is the nonprofit organization created by
President Reagan himself and specifically charged by him with continuing his legacy and sharing his principles – individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride. The Foundation is a non-partisan organization which sustains the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, the Reagan Center for Public Affairs, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center and its internationally recognized, award-winning Discovery Center, and the Air Force One Pavilion.
THE RONALD REAGAN GREAT COMMUNICATOR DEBATE SERIES
The Ronald Reagan Great Communicator Debate Series is designed to develop proactive informed, educated and conscientious citizens and leaders by creating and hosting a
national series of high school debate. This nonpartisan debate series will culminate in a National Championship, hosted on-site at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, located in Simi Valley, CA, and will showcase the talents of top ranked high school debaters from diverse regions across the country.
The National Championship itself will coincide with major elections, and will promote civic engagement, highlight the legacy of President Reagan as both “The Great Communicator” and a legendary presidential debater, and spotlight several of the nation’s most promising high school communicators. Engaging in civil discourse around the principles of government is a hallmark of American democracy, and the Reagan Library has frequently served as a venue for civic and political leaders to examine pressing national and world issues since its inception.
