This Summer, Team Qatar is getting ready for the World Schools Debate Championship (WSDC). The World Schools Debating Championships is an annual tournament involving pre-tertiary debaters aged 14 - 19. Founded in 1988, the tournament is held in a different location every year. In recent years, the competition has involved teams from roughly 50 nations each year. This year, WSDC is being held in Stuttgart, Germany between July 19-29th 2016.
From the 26th of April to the 31st of May QatarDebate hosted weekly 3-hour workshops for students from a range of different schools in Qatar. This varied group of 33 beginner debaters comprised 16 different nationalities and they came from all levels of schooling from as young as Grade 4 to Grade 11. The debaters were introduced to Argumentation, Public Speaking, Debate Format, and Case Building.
