National Qualifier - ICYD

International Competition for Young Debaters 2023

ICYD (International Competition for Young Debaters) is an annual debating competition in the British Parliamentary Format that was set up to encourage younger students to take up debating and to give them a chance to debate against students of their own age, with motions more suited to them. Information about the competition (held in Cambridge, UK, at the end of April) can be accessed here.

Interested teams must be composed of two members from the same educational institution and they must not have reached their 16th birthday by August 31, 2023. Hungary is allowed to field two teams, composed of the two top teams that emerge from the qualifier event.

​Please note that there is a team cap of 16, so register as soon as possible.

All costs (travel, lodgings, registration) are payable by participating teams.

You may register for the qualifiers here.
