SILISTRA WILL HOST ITS FIRST BEST TOURNAMENT

On 20-21 February, Atanas Burov Secondary Vocational School of Economics, Administration, and Service will host a BEST tournament – a first for the school as well as the city. Students will compete in English-language debate, poetry and prose performance, and original oratory.

It will be a regional tournament, with teams representing twelve cities across northeastern and central Bulgaria, including two teams from Silistra. BEST expects that about 140 students will compete, and representatives of the Bulgarian Fulbright Commission and BEST Board of Trustees will attend as special guests.

The Silistra tournament will be the second of the spring’s three regionals. The third will be on 5-6 March in Pernik, leading up to the U.S. Qualifier at the end of March and Nationals in April.
