And the winner.....

Team USA Hunter College High School have snatched victory in the Grand Final of the Karl Popper Debate Championship at the IDEA Youth Forum in Istanbul. Debating the motion – Should All States Immediately Ratify The UN Resolution On Migrants And Their Families? – Bram Wasti, Fiona Lowenstein and Diana Li beat runners-up, the Academy Higher of Learning from California.

“We had a tough competition,” said Wasti, “Especially against Uganda in the quarter-finals. In the final it was very finely split.”

Fiona Lowenstein said the team did not normally work together or debate in the Karl Popper format - but that they had added to each other skills in crucial areas. Fiona Lowenstein and Diana Li competed together at the Youth Forum last year but lost to the UK.
