BEST Tournaments

English-language speech and debate tournaments are the cornerstone of our programming. We are the only organization in Bulgaria that gives students the opportunity to compete in five unique competition events.

In 2016-2017, we redefined our regional model to create more opportunities for students to compete with their peers (at Novice and Varsity levels) and to meet students from across the country.

Last year, our regions were divided into East and West. Each region had a Fall and Spring Tournament. Our National Tournament and US Qualifier Tournament were still national events. Find out which region your school falls into here.

Our tournaments cater to high school students in Bulgaria studying English as a Foreign Language. However, we welcome inquiries from abroad as well.
