Northern North Island Impromptu Cup 2019 – Entries Now Open!

Auckland Schools’ Debating is excited to host in 2019 the first ever Northern North Island Impromptu Cup. We are inviting teams from Northland, Auckland, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty, to compete in the exciting impromptu debating style. The format is open to all debaters from years 10 to 13.

Students compete in teams of two and are given five minute preparation time for their debate. Speeches are also five minutes long, with no points of information. Although the format sounds challenging, it is also a lot of fun. There will be a detailed presentation on the impromptu style at the beginning of the tournament.
