Dear Korean Debating Community,

The Korean Forensics League Student Liaisons are pleased to announce the opening of the first Korea Forensics League Debate Tournament (KFLDT). The first tournament to be hosted by and run by the KFL Student Liaisons, KFLDT was created to foster a healthy debating community within Korea that center on student-led initiatives catered for student-based demands. Targeting middle school students throughout Korea, KFLDT seeks to provide middle school students with an opportunity to engage in an intellectual discourse with their peers and high school students with a chance to take a more proactive role in contributing to the debating community they are part of.

The first KFLDT will be held at Cheong Shim International Academy (CSIA) on 2011 November 12th~13th. The format of the tournament will be British Parliament with each team consisting of 2 people. Teams may consist of students from different institutions. There will be 4 power-matched preliminary rounds, followed by single elimination tournament rounds where the top 16 teams will compete for the tournament trophy. Furthermore, the award-recipients of KFLDT will have their performances taken into account in the upcoming ESDC (European Schools Debating Championship) selection process.
