. WSC is an international program founded on the basis of debates and includes 6 subjects ranging from science, social studies, literature, history, arts and music, and finally a mystery subject that changes year after year. Not only does this competition enhance our public speaking skills, but it also educates us on subjects and topics we really are not familiar with at school. The only flaw this program has is that it is held at a foreign country, and all the expenses concerning the tickets to travel, the hotel fees, the registration in competition fee, insurance, food, and transport have to be covered by the students themselves.
. In the “Regional” round in Dubai, our school, consisting of 15 students forming 5 teams in total, was able to win most of the prestigious awards and ranked in positions previous teams from our school weren’t able to reach. Each team is made up of 3 individuals. We were facing countries from the Philippines, India, Egypt, Nigeria, UAE, Australia, England, and USA just to name a few. Among the 264 teams which participated, one of our Lebanese teams came in first in the debate round, first in the writing round, and second as overall team in the whole competition. Overall, ASG students won 37 individual gold medals, 23 individual silver medals, 5 team trophies, and 1 individual trophy for a student who came in second place in the whole competition. Because of our excellent performance in the Dubai round, all of the 5 teams that participated from our school qualified to the next global round in Beijing, China, which will be held from June 21 till June 26.
. We just came from Dubai and we really want to go to the China Round to represent our country on a much bigger scale. However, due to the big expenses we have on our shoulders, we really can’t afford going without some external financial help. This is why we need your help and monetary support. We are 15 students, and we need about 40,000 USD to cover the tickets, hotels, and competition registration fee. It would be a great loss if we do not go and represent Lebanon there and show other countries that we are knowledgeable, educated, articulate, and extremely well spoken. . Any kind of financial support will do
