The Varna tournament will be BEST’s 22nd tournament and the sixth and last in the 2016-2017 school year.
The tournament is open to English-language speech and debate teams across the country and aims to gather the entire BEST community in one city for one final tournament to close out the year. BEST expects to host approximately 500 people in Varna, including over 360 competitors from 35 schools.
