Time is running out to participate in this year's International Public Policy Forum (IPPF), the only contest that gives high school students the opportunity to participate in written and oral debates on public policy. Hurry! The registration deadline is October 14th.
Registration is free! To enter, simply submit a 2800 word qualifying essay (affirmative or negative) on this year's topic: "Resolved: The United Nations should substantially increase humanitarian assistance for persons living in poverty." Prizes include an all-expense-paid trip to the IPPF Finals in New York City (April 16-18, 2010), and more than $30,000 in prize money (including a $10,000 grand prize).
It's a one of-a-kind universal debate competition! The IPPF welcomes debaters from around the world — and from a wide spectrum of debate and forensic events. Every debater is invited to participate in the IPPF.
