The Fall 2019 Xiamen Regional Tournament featured nearly 70 students from cities across China and over 25 schools. Thanks to our gracious host school Xiamen No. 1 High School for hosting the tournament. Your supportive teachers, coordinated volunteers, and enthusiastic students make the tournament much more enjoyable. Thanks to everyone else that also made this tournament possible.
Congratulations to all teams for competing in, and completing, 4 difficult debates, for most of you, in a second language about global nuclear weapons policy that implicates all of our collective futures. Regardless of how many debates you won, you should be proud of yourself for improving your communication, critical thinking, and research skills by participating. Hopefully, you had an educational and enjoyable weekend!
For those of you that competed for your first time ever, special congratulations on conquering your first debate tournament! Debating, especially in a second language, is no easy task and you all have demonstrated significant skill and courage just from attending. We hope you found the activity fun and rewarding!
For those of you that have competed before, we hope you have noticed improvements in your debating and continue to benefit from participation. Dedication to debate is sure to pay off in the future and we are excited to see where you go next!
