5th Annual National Debate Team Tryouts Webpage
Tryouts for the next Moroccan National Debate Team (MNDT 2018) will be held in September 2017 in Casablanca and 8 will be chosen to be trained from October 2017 to August 2018, to compete in the 2018 WSDC and one other international tournaments. 4 students will be chosen for the Senior Team and 4 for the Junior Team. Both teams will compete in international tournaments but the senior team will attend the WSDC 2018.
Students will have to undergo a small workshop in the World Schools (WSDC) debate format, an interview, public speaking speeches, and individual & team debates. The process as this is a full-day event. Having experience in public speaking, debate and/or MUN is helpful but not necessary, students with and without experience have been selected in the past.
The 5th MNDT will be chosen by our coaching staff, adjudicators and invited national selectors.
