The World Scholar's Cup is an international non-profit educational foundation that brings secondary school students together online and in person to compete in a series of events related to a special global curriculum. The idea is to build an international community of future leaders and thinkers, while helping students gain new knowledge and skills. The curriculum changes each year; this year's theme is "A World Divided." One of the four main events of each tournament is a team debate (teams are comprised of three students).
Singapore is hosting the Southeast Asian leg of the tournament this year. The format of the competition is slightly different from the standard World School's debate format, and adjudicators will have the opportunity to watch a variety of participants from all over the region.
The team debates will take place on 27 March 2010 at Nanyang Girls' High School, and the organisers are appealing for volunteer adjudicators on that day itself. The event runs from 12pm to 6pm, and lunch will be provided. All volunteer adjudicators will receive training on that day itself, as well as a certificate of appreciation.
