Koboko Youth in Development (KOYID) is organizing the first ever District Debate Championship. This event will be the climax of the Youth Empowerment through Debate project funded by OSI and will take place on August 14-18, at St. Charles Lwanga College in Uganda. The debate will include approximately 100 participants, comprising of students and debate patrons from 18 secondary schools in the Koboko District, selected members of KOYID, and trainers from the Youth Debate League Uganda team, and others.
This championship marks another milestone in the region, following the training of debate trainers in Koboko in June 2009. This event will also serve as a follow-up activity to get nearby schools involved in the debate scene. May the best debater win!
