The World Scholar’s Cup Regional Round 2021, Sofia

This last weekend, one of the most exciting events of the school calendar year – The World Scholar’s ​​Cup Regional Round 2021, Sofia, traditionally took place for a fifth consecutive year in St. George International School and Preschool. Over 250 students from many schools in Sofia embarked on a series of debates, creative writing, general academic training tournaments, and of course at the end they were justifiably honored with awards and alpacas!

This year the topics of the team debates for the Juniors division were: “Should parents admit their mistakes to children?”,”People should get new names when they become world leaders” and “It would be good if Bulgaria could create its own climate”.

On their part, the Seniors Division had to roll up their sleeves on the following topics: “That the people who make fewest mistakes should become politicians”, “First colony on Mars should consist of one person from each country”, and “That we should create a bank of melodies that musician can use for free to create their music”.

Traditionally, the “Showcase” was held on the second day of the competition. During the showcase eight of the most prominent and good debaters from the previous day were taking part. Our students Ryan W. and Christiana P. were among the chosen ones, as they presented brilliantly their teams and won the applause of the audience, defending the arguments “for” and “against” on the topic: “That it would be better to move to a new planet than to try and fix the Earth”.

Right after the discussion, the “Scholar’s Show” took place in the program. The students from the schools in Sofia gave their best, and the audience had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful program of great vocal and musical performances, dances and a lot more.

Of course, as any competition, the award ceremony was the most exciting and emotional part of the program for everyone. The parents watched the event via a live stream in a special area for them.
