Attention all debaters!
Through the O’VISOR (Only What You Give is Yours) project, we come to you with an exciting national championship of Karl Popper debate being held at the International Burch University on the June 5th, starting at 12:00!
The aim of the O’visor Debate Competition is to raise awareness about volunteering and charity, and also to facilitate in an attractive way the development of skills, abilities, and knowledge of the participants. This debating is intended to educate while teaching hard-work and social
etiquette as well.
Favoring one or more of these aspects at the expense of others is a misunderstanding of the fundamental principles of competitive debating. Nevertheless, the formative aspect is essential given the age of participants as their approach to life is being formed.
Bearing this in mind, participants agree:
a) to adhere to the principles of fair play, decent behavior and mutual respect to the best of their abilities,
b) not to knowingly use untrue information,
c) to debate given motions.

In addition to the grand prize, the winners will have a chance to receive monetary and symbolic prizes. The first place team will get 500KM, while the second place gets 250KM.
