PhilSpeaks Competitive Weekend 2019
An exciting, memorable and rewarding experience for students from across Ireland; the Competitive Weekend is the highlight of the PhilSpeaks calendar.
Rounds are run “Mace” style, with two teams of two arguing on each side of the motion. Motions for debates will be announced to all competitors fifteen minutes before the start of each debate. All teams will take part in a minimum of five rounds and the most successful teams will progress to the semis and final on Saturday evening.
The Grand Final, which is watched by a large audience comprising all participants, Phil Council and Phil members, as well as teachers and parents who wish to attend, is held in the atmospheric Chamber of the Graduates’ Memorial Building.
The event takes place on the second weekend of February.
Registration fee for the Competitive Weekend is 30 euro per team, inclusive of all meals.
There are discounted places available for DEIS schools and travel subsidies for those travelling from outside Dublin available upon request.
