IDEA would like to remind everyone about the open call to host the 3rd annual IDEA China Open Debate Tournament in 2012. Previously Xi'an Jiaotong University (2010) and Northeast University of Qinghuandao (2011) graciously served as hosts for the tournament. As the tournament has grown in size and popularity, IDEA has been approached by various schools wishing to host the tournament going forward. In order to choose among these offers fairly, we feel that it is important to have an open bidding process.
We therefore request that any school
interested in hosting the 2012 IDEA China Open Debate Tournament submit the
following information to this year's tournament director, Robert Trapp
(email@example.com ) and the executive director of IDEA-US, Alex Dukalskis
1. A letter of application from the applicant
detailing the reasons for wishing to host the tournament, the facilities
available for the tournament, and tentative budget.
2. The name,
background and qualifications of the person who will serve as Tournament
3. A letter of support from the university from a person at least
as high-ranking as a dean.
Please submit by email to Robert and Alex. We are extending the deadline to September 15,
2011. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to
