Registration now open for 2013 Cabin Fever Debates; more than $1,000 in prizes available
by Michelle Saport |
The Seawolf debate team is proud to present the Seventh Annual Cabin Fever Debates intramural debating tournament. The tournament is an opportunity for UAA students to hone critical thinking and advocacy skills while competing for great prizes, including over $1,000 to be awarded throughout the tournament.
Held over a series of Tuesday evenings in the spring semester, the Cabin Fever Debates provide UAA students not active on the competitive Seawolf debate team the opportunity to give academic debating a try. Designed for students with little or no competitive experience, the tournament will expose you to the fundamentals of debating and offer the chance to compete in the hopes of becoming the 2013 Champion Team.
The introductory session, featuring a demonstration debate by the Seawolf debate team, will be held Jan. 29, 7-9 p.m., in SSB 118. From there, competitors will participate in one preliminary round in February. Winning teams will advance to the semifinal round to be held March 5 and then the final round on March 7.
Registration is now open on our website. To be eligible to compete, you must be a UAA undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in at least six credits in spring 2013. Registration is free but limited to the first 32 two-person teams and priority is given to students who register as a complete team. We always have more teams who want to compete than space available so sign up early.
