AUK Debate Team Dominates Local Competition

The team representing AUK at the first annual Kuwait Open Debate tournament, held under the auspices of Mishaal Talal Fahad Al-Sabah, won the top award for English-language debating. The competition was held at the Qadsiya Sporting Club in Hawalli on Saturday May 23rd.

In the first round, the AUK team successfully argued for allowing international organizations to handle African disputes and conflicts. The second debate ended in a draw with GUST as AUK argued that the USA is a Christian country. The team of judges decided that based on our team's performance in the first debate, the AUK team was the overall competition winner. Each of our students was awarded a medal and cash prize. The event concluded with a dinner.

The AUK team was comprised of Nada A. Al-Hudaid, Dana Shamlawi, Yousef A Al-Kandari and Haya A Al-Qassar. The faculty who assisted in preparing the students were Professor Christopher Gottschalk, DR. Rawda Awwad and Dr. Christopher Ohan.
