After two days of fierce fighting, NSDA 2020-2021 National Speech and Debate Tournament Wuxi Regional Championship ended successfully in WUIS on Dec 13th. More than a hundred contestants competed on the same stage. They are sparkling with passion, agility and logical thinking.

This time, all teams are composed of students from grades 4-12. They are all ambitious and prepared, looking forward to using their superb skills and unique perspectives to defeat their opponents and impress the judges. Nearly fifty candidates from our school participated in the campus competition, and eleven contestants entered the regional competition.
Our speakers’ confidence is beyond imagination, their passion and fun, tact and humor, made the atmosphere of the entire arena reach the highest value! The ticking timer and fierce speculation in the debate field heightened the atmosphere to the climax. Logic and speech, reaction and strength were fully displayed at this moment. This is the charm of debate and speech!
