Geo Milev FLHS in Dobrich to Host 2018 Speech and Debate Tournament

On 10-11 March 2018, Geo Milev Foreign Language High School in Dobrich will host a BEST tournament – a first time for the school. Students will compete in five events: English-language debate, poetry and prose performance, duo interpretation, and original oratory.

The Dobrich tournament will be BEST’s 26th tournament and the 4th 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 eastern region. BEST expects to host over 300 people in Dobrich, including nearly 250 student competitors from 19 different teams.

The tournament will be the last of four yearly regional tournaments. BEST will host two additional events during the Spring semester: an international oratory tournament at the American University in Bulgaria and a national tournament at the Agricultural University in Plovdiv.
