Talk-The-Talk Intermediate Schools Debates Challenge

Sadly this year's debates have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 levels going back up to Level 2.

An annual live-to-air contest run where teams debate moots of interest and relevance to intermediate-aged students. The aim is to foster public-speaking and radio skills in a professionally-adjudicated debating forum, while all the time still being fun and entertaining. The contest has been running since 2002.
