Organising Committee

Why you should join and why it is national?

We aim to improve the capacity of critical thinking, public speaking as well as debating skill, spreading fame of education into society. The most important factor, we want to bring Cambodia to the world. So that, students are not only enjoy studying in class, but also can think out of the box to learn and challenge in academic activity outside the class by participating in public speaking and debating competition. Moreover, our model is following the British parliamentary debate style, and the world school debate style, as well as international public speaking platform. Definitely, students are able to adopt themselves into an international competition stage recognising by most flagship establishments in Asia and the world.
