JCI Malta is holding its National Debating Competition on 22 August and anyone between the ages of 18 and 40 is invited to register and debate. The competition looks to find the best debaters on the island who will then represent JCI Malta at an international conference in the future. People can either register as a team of three or as an individual and they will then be placed in a team.
Being an organisation that is focused on developing its members into future leaders, JCI Malta believes that knowing how to debate and speak in public is of utmost importance and therefore training will be provided by some of the best trainers and debaters prior to the competition.
Throughout the month of July there will be a series of friendly debating sessions held, allowing participants to practise debating according to JCI guidelines.
The final training session, ‘Debating Skills Refresher’, will be held on 8 August 2020 to help all participants revise their debating skills and the final preparations before the competition which will be held on 22 August 2020 from 09:00 – 17:00 where all teams will compete for the coveted title of JCI Malta National Debating champions.The winning team will be winning a fully-funded trip costing more than €3,000 where they will get to compete in a European setting, once European JCI countries announce they are opening up for conferences again. More details about this will be announced in the coming months.
