MYDT (Muslim Youth Debate Tournament), a youth enrichment platform of the Mafiq Foundation brings to you a virtual national parliamentary-style debate tournament at the 2021 ICNA National Symposium. Muslim Youth of middle school and high school age interested in competing in this debate tournament are invited to complete this registration form by 15 March 2021.
The competing teams (each team consists of three-members) will participate in a two-round parliamentary-style impromptu debate on April 3rd and the qualifying teams will compete in semifinals and finals on April 4th. Champions and runners-up will receive a cash award. Please carefully review the debate format and rubrics found in the link below.
MYDT is committed to providing a platform for Muslim youth to foster analytical reasoning, critical thinking, and persuasive argumentation. We hope to offer that opportunity to the participating youth of the ICNA Symposium, in shaa Allah.
