Laztly, the A-core of this tournament:
– Fhadilah (USU) as the Chief Adjudicator
A small town girl trapped in the world of debating. She has been constantly trying to free herself from the addiction, yet the more she resists the more she loved debating. Today, debating does not only consume some portion of her life. She has dedicated herself to be the Chief Adjudicator of the first Medan Pro Am Debate Open, to ensure the debating community remain sustained. Equipped with her leadership and also remarkable adjudicating skill, she is the best candidate we ever had.

– Agus (UMN)
Also known as the ghost of UMN CoDe. He is the guy behind the progressive development of UMN CoDe. Having the traits of hardworking and humble, this debater remain eager to keep on improving himself. Though he has missed his spotlight in debating, he decided to utilize the negative emotion into will power, which is used in self-actualizing himself through this competition. By showing his merit in debate, he hopes he will ever find peace in debating.

– Satya (MDF)
A debate enthusiast that is joyfully infected with debate virus. Today, he is attempting to release a groundbreaking debate epidemic to his local community. Being equipped with his little superior knowledge, it is within his power to infect common people with debate virus. FYI, the intended-to-be-released virus is certified with national experiences.

PS: You can find the details in the given poster.

MDF Pre-NUDC Debate Boot Camp 2017 Afterglow

Our ministry of education changed the name of our education curriculum from Kurikulum Berbasis Kompetisi to Kurikulum Berbasis Kompetensi in 2001, with claims that the nature of education should be to nurture children to perfection, not sending them to a battle arena and watch them gladiator to death.

Well, we beg to differ. Debating should be training both aspects of your intellect: your competitiveness and your competence. Hence, why we conducted this MDF Pre-NUDC DBootCamp 2017. Preparing Kopertis-1 debaters, honing your competence, in order to be competitive in your NUDC later. We hope that we have succeeded in making you competent. Now, be competitive in the nationals!

Congratulations to the best team in this competition which managed to secure the champion title from winning all six debate rounds with a clean streak: USU A (Agung & Dedy)
