The Literific and Alpha Schools’ Debating Competition – 25th February 2015

Deadlines are approaching for our schools’ competition – if you would like to get involved there are a limited number of places left for teams! This is a really good chance for schools to get involved with competitive debating and will be held at the Queen’s campus in Belfast on Wednesday the 25th of February 2015.

Any students reading this, why not get in touch with your teachers about the competition? Sure to be a great day of competitions, workshops, seeing the local campus and potentially winning one of these lovely trophies (see below).

Check out our schools page on the website for the handbook, itinerary and details of the previous years competition.
Any queries please email Marie-Louise at
