Dear members of international debate community,

the Slovak Debate Association would like to invite you to the second edition of the international Bratislava Schools Debating Competition. The tournament will take place from 12th to 16th April 2012 in Slovakia’s capital city Bratislava. 
This event is supported by the European Commission through the Europe for Citizens program.

The first edition of BSDC, which took place last year, attracted teams from 8 countries, namely Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia and Turkey. This year we would like to host teams from even more countries and provide an excellent opportunity for practice to teams going to WSDC 2013 in Turkey, as well as invite schools and teams not going to WSDC. 

We are pleased to announce that after Beth James in 2011, our chief adjudicator this year will be Eva Spoor. Eva has substantial experience, having served as chief adjudicator of the Dutch Schools Debating Championship, WSDC chief adjudicaton panelist and IDEA Youth Forum trainer. She will be assited by international deputy chief adjudicators whose names we will announce later.

Registration will be closed on 29th February.
