PetrSU Team Participate in the Debattle Project
PetrSU representatives take part in the Debattl» project, a contest in rhetoric, public presence, and argumentation skills.
The project organizers define resolutions for the debates and randomly distribute them between pairs of teams.
Debates participants are assessed by a panel of judges (regional mass media representatives, politicians, public figures), against three criteria: argumentation (arguments preparation on a given topic), polemics (cross-examination), and performance (behavior on public, self-confidence).
In each round, the winner who passes to the next round is decided by a total score.
«Debattle is the rhetoric competition, not examination of participants’ opinions, so it is important for them to make arguments and to defend points of view, whichever side they have to take», said the project organizers.
Totally, 16 teams of 14 regions of Russia are taking part in the competition.
PetrSU has its own Debates Club and you can learn more about its activities on its page on VKontakte.
