The Debaters Season 1 ended with flying colors. This year, The Debaters Season 2 has come back on VTV7 and been drawing huge interest from audiences, especially high school students who love both English and debates. British University Vietnam (BUV) is honoured to be the main sponsor of the contest. The champions will be granted a two-week study trip to the UK. Alongside this, the 4 best speakers will be awarded four scholarships valued at 30% of the tuition fee on bachelor’s degrees at BUV.
The Debaters is an English-language speaking contest for high school students aged 14-18 on VTV7, based on the World High School Student Debate format (WSDC). This is not only a platform for students who have a propensity for English and debate activities to convey their opinions about several educational and social topics as well as express their specific interests in global issues, but also a place for those who want to make friends and engage with other students.
In season 2, The Debaters promises to bring many exciting challenges and hurdles to climb as a host of the best high schools debaters battle it out to be crowned champions. This is an occasion for high school students to showcase their creativity, talent, and humility when competing with other talented students. As the main sponsor of The Debaters Season 2, British University Vietnam (BUV) has been accompanying at every step as the contestants journeyed from the Tournament round to the Final round. All students partook the Tournament round at BUV Campus.
After the Tournament round at BUV campus, the 12 most outstanding teams will be selected for the Final. They will have chance to formally study about debating format and related skills with debate experts and coaches of the show.
The Judgement panel of the season consists of experts who are experienced in debate contests and have been a part in various game shows on VTV7 such as Ms. Nguyen Ngoc Tu Uyen, Mr. Nguyen Chi Hieu and Mr. Stewart Utley – Head of English Department at BUV.
As one of 3 judges of The Debaters Season 2, Mr. Stewart Utley shared his thoughts as being part of this exciting journey with the students: “Being invited as one of the judges for the Debaters truly was an honour. Witnessing first-hand a new generation of young Vietnamese engaging with complex and important topics with such maturity reaffirmed why I love working in the education sector here in Vietnam.”
“The creativity, the passion and, above all else, the humility regardless of outcome was truly energizing to see and be a part of. These skills, which extend further than the debating skills themselves, are absolutely vital to the continued growth and success of Vietnam and to see the youth harness these skills with such vitality confirms that the future of Vietnam is in good hands.”
With a mission to produce a new generation of talented discoverers, explorers and creative thinkers well educated, trained, and prepared to thrive in 4IR fields of work and life, BUV has been in partnerships with several global and local organisations such as VTV7, VTV6 and Carlsberg Vietnam to offer competitions and contests to Vietnamese students. Aside from The Debaters Season 2, BUV helps support local communities and Vietnamese youth with vast study opportunities and a wide range of activities, so that they can develop themselves with passion and enthusiasm.
