2018-19 International Public Policy Forum

Debate teams from around the world entered the 2018-19 International Public Policy Forum (IPPF) competition, but only 16 remain – including Hamilton High School.
International Public Policy Forum is an international written debate competition sponsored by Brewer Foundation and New York University. Teams from high schools prepare and submit a written argument taking a stance on the yearly theme. Judges determine which teams move forward to the next round based on claims, evidence, and argumentative strategies. The Top 8 receive an all-expenses paid trip to New York City to compete in the final round.
Hamilton High School’s team competing this year: Seniors Jake Nance, Aatmik Mallya, Eric Scheng, Jonathan Li, Nivea Krishnan, and Junior Daniel Shih.
