2) Debate Experience
Due to space constraints, priority will be given to students from schools which do not have extensive debate resources or strong alumni support. This is because schools which do have these resources available to them already run training programmes of comparable quality.

We are of course still very interested in involving you in facilitating camps for younger debaters, and other such community leadership and involvement opportunities. Please get in touch with us to talk!
