WSDC 2013 Prepared Motions Revealed

The 5 prepared motions for the 2013 World Schools Debating Championships in Turkey are out. Each WSDC team must undergo 8 preliminary rounds, half of them prepared while the other four will be announced an hour before the debates. The other known motion is designed for the grand final.

WSDC does not use a power matching system as the draw is predetermined using a scheme that gives each team reasonably equal chance to meet opponents from various levels. Prepared motions should be publicised two months before the tournament but the order for the preliminary ones will only be revealed along with the role assignments and complete draw next month. WSDC 2013 will take place from January 28 to February 5. 

This House supports greater US military presence in East Asia
This House believes that important decisions about children's health should be made by medical professionals, not by their parents
