On May 21-23, as college students are departing from the campus of Willamette University, high school debaters from around the world will be arriving to compete in the 2010 IDEA International Tournament of Champions. Already registered for the highly anticipated tournament are excellent teams from Pakistan, Zambia, and the Philippines, and even more international teams are expected to register. This event provides a unique opportunity for high school teams to meet outstanding skilled debaters from all over the world!
The sixth annual International Tournament of Champions in Salem, Oregon is a weekend full of learning, competitive debate, and friendship-building activities. The event begins with a debate workshop hosted by IDEA and the Willamette University Debate Union. Debaters will learn how to participate in the "Worlds-School" debate format, which will be used during the tournament. Participants will also get a taste of college life as they stay in Willamette's dormitories and relax in the Montag Den, where students can interact through fun games and activities.
