Registration deadline for 2010 WODC only one week away

There are now just six short days until registration closes on July 1st for the 2010 World Online Debating Championship. If you would like to take part in the WODC, but have not yet organized a team, collected the entrance fee, or applied for a bursary, time is running out!

The WODC organizing committee has made several technical changes to make participation in the online debate tournament easier. The WODC site is now more accessible to join, and a Google Calendar has also been added, which will display when teams will compete and which teams have won their debates. Also, the committee has established a 2,000 character limit on each point made, so that participants can efficiently make an argument and then more easily respond to other arguments as well.

With registration only a week away, and with new tournament improvements, what are you waiting for? This competition is like no other, and your chances to enter are are running out quickly. However, the WODC is not for everyone; only serious, smart, and hard-working debaters should apply.
