Results of D3DC 2017

Written by DA(S) Admin on .

The Division III Debating Championships, sponsored by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) was held on 14 January 2017 at Loyang Secondary School.

This tournament allowed debaters in Division III of the Singapore Secondary Schools Debating Championship to hone their debating skills and gain experience prior to the National Championships. Debaters gained greater insight into the issue of problem gambling in the local context, and the related social and economic concerns. They debated on motions such as banning video games in which in-game currency is used to gamble for virtual items, or giving out social welfare in goods and services rather than the equivalent cash value.
