The 4th Annual Northern Lights
British Parliamentary Debate Tournament
The Seawolf Debate Team is pleased to present the fourth annual Northern Lights worlds-style debate tournament. The competition will be held in the afternoon on Friday, April 19th, and Saturday, April 20th. On Friday afternoon, the tournament will begin with a British Parliamentary debating tutorial and a demonstration debate by the UAA debate team. There will be four preliminary rounds of competition, followed by the final round.
The tournament is open to any high school student—public, private, or home-schooled. Although the specific motions and sides of the topic to be debated will not be announced until 20 minutes prior to the start of the round, we will announce the five broad topic areas on the tournament website, roughly 1 month prior to the tournament. All experience levels are encouraged to participate… no prior debate, drama, and forensics experience required, as this is an independent open invitation tournament to any high school student!
