EVGDI, a small scale inter-school tournament provided the novice Secondary 1 to 3 debaters a challenging yet less daunting debating experience. Motions were pitched at an appropriate level and the larger group of 20 adjudicators (3 to 5 at each round) from the Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) Oratorical Society ensured that the debaters received rich feedback at each round. Evergreen will continue to organise this tournament to further nurture the debating culture in the North Cluster.
