High School Debating Championship

The Queen’s University High School Debating Championship will be held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario once again this winter. The tournament is one of the most prestigious and competitive debate tournaments for students at the high school level.

The Queen’s Debating Union, North America’s oldest debating society, is in its 177th session. We have a strong reputation of competitive success, as well as hosting educational and well-run tournaments. The Queen’s National High School Debating Championship is among the most esteemed and well-attended high school debating events of the year.
