Posted 11/27/2013 07:15AM

5 SIS students participated in Tournament of Champions of debating contest called the World Scholar’s Cup(WSC) at Yale University in the United states  of America from Nov. 15-17.The student’s names are listed below:
One team: Rick (MinSeok) Choi(9th), Amanda See Yue Wong(8th),  Ryan (WooHyeok) Choi(7th)
Other team: SeungMin Kim(9th), Prisha Kapur(8th), Thomas Kim(9th, previous SIS student, now in Korea)

World Scholar’s Cup was not included as an ASA just 1 year ago therefore Rick Choi(9th) wanted to found a new debating club at SIS. He and 5 other students gathered at his house every Sunday to practice the skills for debating and public speaking. They were divided into 2 teams and each team was composed of 3 members. They passed through a regional round in Shanghai(April 27-28, 2013) and global round in Dubai(June 20-23, 2013) and  did an outstanding job and were qualified for the Tournment of Champions at Yale University in the USA. These amazing students participated in the Yale Champion Round(Nov.15-17, 2013) and won several medals both individually and as a team at several sections such as the Individual Debate, Team Debate, Essay Writing and several subjects of Challenge.
