Win Global Debates points and a trip to the International Tournament of Champions

Participating in the Fall 2009 People Speak Global Debates and want to get ahead? The IDEA Challenge is the perfect opportunity! This special contest allows teams a chance to win 500 extra points for the Global Debates, plus an all expense-paid trip to the 2010 IDEA International Tournament of Champions.

The IDEA Challenge is a written contest based on the public debate teams hold for the Fall 2009 Global Debates. Teams need to submit two essays based on the resolution for the public debate, one essay in favor and the other against. Debaters use The People Speak debate toolkit and the IDEA Challenge toolkit to write the essays, and then submit them by Monday, November 16th. The top ten submissions win 500 Global Debate Points, and the top team wins a trip to the 2010 ITOC next spring at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon.
