In 2017, 96 teams from schools in all states & territories are competing. Approximately 90 of the 140 debates for 2017 are completed. Anecdotally the feedback is excellent from schools. Assuming the relevant management can be put in place by ISQ & AISNSW for 2018,  the possibility of moving to 4 x 32 team “double elimination” competitions is being considered. However, assuming the 2018 program is approved, an expression of interest process will occur in November 2017. Your support at that time would be greatly appreciated.
