Division III Debating Championships 2014 Results

Written by DA(S) Admin on .

On the 11th of January Of December, 10 teams from Division III secondary schools across Singapore gathered at Anglican High School to compete in the Division III Debate Championships (D3DC).

Organised by Debate Association (Singapore), the D3DC presents a unique opportunity for less-exposed and less-experienced school debate teams to hone their skills in a learning-oriented environment. Students discussed topics such as the effect of personal electronic devices on today's youth, the mandatory death penalty and civil disobedience.

Additionally and in a first for 2014, eighteen shadow adjudicators in training for the Singapore Nationals also gained on-the-job experience under specially-designated senior Judge Mentors. This is part of a new DA(S) initiative to increase the depth of Singapore's volunteer adjudication pool, and improve the competencies of new judges.
