Dear Speech and Debate Coach,


The Bulgarian English Speech and Debate Tournaments Foundation (BEST), in conjunction with Yoan Ekzarh FLHS in Varna, invites high school students who have previously competed in a regional BEST tournament during this academic year to register now for the BEST National Speech and Debate Tournament of the 2016-2017 season.


The tournament will be held 21-23 April 2017 at Yoan Ekzarh FLHS in Varna.


This competition will be a challenging, engaging, and fun opportunity for students to practice their public speaking and argumentation skills in English, as well as meet other motivated students from around the country.


Students can compete individually in the following events: Prose, Poetry, or Oratory. They can also compete in teams of two in Duo or teams of three in World Schools Debate. Detailed explanations and rules for each event are outlined in the Events Overview page. Participants are divided into Novice (Grades 8 and 9) or Varsity (Grades 10, 11, 12) divisions. Novice students can compete in Varsity if they so choose. Novice competitors must compete in Varsity if they are competing in a team event (Duo or Debate) and their teammates are in the Varsity division. 


Winners will receive medals, certificates, and local media publicity.


Please browse through the informational pages on this website (links available at the top of the page) for more information.  Please note, the dress code for competitors is business casual.


Please register your students through the SpeechWire website. Registration will close on April 10, 2017 at 11:59 PM. Please note that we should receive all your supporting documentation by this date. Please direct any questions to teambestbulgaria@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you and your students in Varna!
