2020 Years 9 and 10 Final

Duration:
1:04:49

This is the final of the Years 9&10 age division of the challenge, which was held over Zoom on Wednesday 9 December 2020. In response to a debating season shortened by COVID-19, this year the 198 teams entered participated in a state-wide modified knockout competition, with teams losing in the first round having the opportunity to join a repechage draw and return to the main knockouts as the eighth quarter-finalist. In the end it was Cammeraygal High School and James Ruse Agricultural High School who reached this state final. The speaking time is 8 minutes (with a warning bell at 6 minutes) and the topic of the debate is “That parents should be able to withdraw their children from sex education classes.” Congratulations to both teams and to everyone who competed in 2020.
