Successful First Tournament

British Parliamentary Qualifier

The British Parliamentary Qualifier held October 3, was the first tournament of the 2020 debate season. The BP style features four teams all competing against each other in each round. This event qualifies students to go to the National British Parliamentary Championships which will be hosted by the Alberta Debate and Speech Association (ADSA) this year. SEDA will select debaters from the winners to represent Saskatchewan at this national event.

Well done to everyone that participated.

Congratulations to the winners!

Reflections from the British Parliamentary Qualifier

I recently discovered a new passion of mine: debate!

When I debated at the Oct. 3rd British Parliamentary (BP) qualifier tournament, that was my first debate tournament as well as my first debate ever in the BP style. My favourite thing about debating in this tournament was being able to learn from others. I was able to see how others composed their speeches and learn how to properly set up my speech, even though the debate was stressful!

I am looking forward to debating in future tournaments since I really love debate, and I want to learn how to become the best debater I can be.
