The Lawrence Debate Union of the University of Vermont will be hosting the Pan-American Universities Debating Championship on March 23rd and 24th. This tournament will be the first of 2012 to be conducted in Spanish. The format of this tournament is the British Parliamentary style of debate. An excellent and experienced adjudication team will set the topics.
We are currently attempting to bring more institutions into the fold and provide access to a debate tournament for students who are either native Spanish speakers, or the students who are particularly advanced speakers. If you could forward this email to students within your department who you think may be interested in this type of event, it would be greatly appreciated.
If you (or any others) have questions they should feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
