Thank you everyone for participating in the NHSDLC Spring 2020 Dalian Online Regional Tournament.
Congratulations to all teams for competing in, and completing, 4 difficult debates, for most of you, in a second language about tuition-free public colleges and universities and other technical issues at the intersection of politics and economics. 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!
The most exciting feature of Online Tournaments is that they have helped us expand out judge pool to include excellent judges from across the globe.
At this online tournament, we have judges who have advanced to elimination rounds at the prestigious National Debate Tournament, the premier college debate championship in policy debate; the 2017 and 2019 NHSDLC Public Forum National Champions; a NSDA National Champion in Lincoln-Douglas Debate, the largest academic competition in the world; a top-ranked debater in the National Parliamentary Debate Association, the largest national intercollegiate debate organization in the United States; state champions in various debate events across multiple states in the United States; two past DLC Junior Debate Fellows who now attend, and debate for the University of Melbourne and the University of Sydney, one current DLC Junior Debate Fellow who will be attending Columbia University and Sciences Po in the fall; three NHSDLC Alumni who now attend Yale University, University of Toronto, and University of Chicago respectively; among others
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!
