UGM Debaters Take Trophy, Speaker Awards in PetroGas Debate 2014
#1 Universitas Gadjah Mada A (Erwina Salsabila & Thoriq Murtadho) championed the 2014 PetroGas Debate at Universitas Indonesia's Faculty of Engineering after defeating schoolmates UGM D (Alif Satria & Nabila Aghniarizqa) and two teams from Institut Teknologi Bandung -- ITB A (Jane Revevalin & Vicario Reinaldo) and ITB C (Fiski Aditya & Aulia Widyaputra). The winners also topped the individual tab of the competition that had motions related to petroleum engineering. The tournament this year attracted stronger teams and tighter debates than it did when it was launched in 2013. With this victory, UGM has started this year with a bang with 6 different debaters snatching trophies in 3 separate competitions.
