NTU Dorothy Cheung Inter-Tertiary Debating Championships

NTU Debating Society is proud to be organizing Dorothy Cheung Inter-Tertiary Debating Tournament 2007. Dorothy Cheung has traditionally been the largest 3 on 3 tournament in Singapore, attracting some of the best teams in the country.This year we seek to be more ambitious and invite international teams as well. We look forward to making this a pre-AUDC tournament, and involve the AUDC adjudicator core as well as its organizers in this event.

Tournament Schedule:
Since international teams will not be able to attend the event on two Saturdays (as has been the tradition), we have come up with the following schedule. We sincerely hope that the Singapore Junior Colleges will appreciate the opportunity and accordingly make arrangements to attend the event.

March 10th, Saturday:
Registration (Fee $15 per team)
3 preliminary rounds

March 11th, Sunday:
1 preliminary round
Semi Finals

Adjudicator Core:
CA for AUDC 2007, Sushil Sriram.Our adjudicator core will also consist of renowned debaters such as Latif, from Malaysia and Norman, from Philippines.Moreover, a few other respected debaters are likely to come down if their busy schedules permit.

Updates will be constantly posted on our website

Anyone interested in debates can enter the tournament under the name of a tertiary institution. Registration, however, will be done on a team by team basis.

The n adjudicator rule will be followed in the tournament. Therefore, any institute sending n teams is required to send a minimum of n adjudicators.

The Registration fee per team is $15.
Institutes are requested to register on our website

We highly encourage anyone planning to participate in Asians/AUDC this year or in the coming future, to take part in the tournament.

As organizers we will help in arranging accommodation (on campus) for international participants, if required. Teams must note that they will be required to pay for the accommodation themselves. All participants who need accommodation are requested to inform us at by the end of this month. The room rate per night would be SGD 30 per person.

Lunch on both the days will be provided. Furthermore, there will be a Socials Night on 10th March.

Apart from the NTU Debating Society Organizing Committee, some of NTU’s most experienced organizers (Organizers of Worlds 2003-04 & AUDC 2004-05!) will be involved.This year’s AUDC tab writer Kaushik will be implementing the AUDC 2007 Tabbing system with systematic adjudication ranking and feed-back.

We request you to confirm your participation online by Monday, 26th February so that we can proceed with arrangements for the tournament.

See you there!
Feel free to contact us with any queries.
