Hobart and William Smith Colleges World’s Tournament

In yet another exciting tournament for the season, the URDU World’s team has traveled all the way to Geneva to learn and compete in the HWS tournament, which has produced wonderful outcomes! At least every team has earned one winning ranking by the time round 4 was over! *Applause* Also, Ben and Graeme break into the knockout stage of the tournament and finish as semifinalists!! And Ben won the 3rd best speaker award for the open category in the tournament!  It was pleasant for the coaches to know that everybody did so well in this debate!

Some of the motions in this tournament were:

TH, as a hearing parent of a deaf child, would mainstream their child to the exclusion of participation in deaf culture.

THBT sports leagues with systems of promotion and relegation is good for fans.

THBT developed nations should abolish all protectionist trade policies.

THBT the Transgender movement should leave the LGBTQ movement.

Once again, congratulations to y’all who came and let the next World’s tournaments be even better!!

A proud team consisting of Ben and Graeme finish as semifinalists!!! Nice pose!!!
