Yordan Yovkov Primary School to Host 2017 Speech and Debate Tournament

On 18-11-2017, Yordan Yovkov Primary School in Pleven will host a BEST tournament – a first time for the school, as well as for the city. Students will compete in five events: English-language debate, poetry and prose performance, duo interpretation, and original oratory.

The Pleven tournament will be BEST’s 23rd tournament and the first in the 2017-2018 school year.

The tournament is open to English-language speech and debate teams across the country, but targets schools located in the western region. BEST expects to host approximately 360 people in Pleven, including over 250 student competitors.

The tournament will be the first of two fall  regional tournaments. The East Tournament will take place in Sliven on 9-10 December 2017. BEST will also host four tournaments during the Spring semester: two regional tournaments, a tournament hosted at AUBG, and a National tournament.
