The competition will commence with local national inter-school activities in the respective participating countries for selection of the finalists for the finals in Nairobi.  At least a delegation of Forty Five (45) Secondary school students from each of the five East African Community member states and neighbouring countries will be considered for participation. Partner organizations will offer guidance and supervision of such events to ensure unbiased and quality outcome, resource mobilization and government support.

 The program uses the World School Debating System which is a structured debating system that follows a specific format known and used worldwide in school debating competitions. Using this format, focus is given to two types of debate motions:

  1. Policy Debate motions – this refers to motions drawn from policies formulate by government which gives debaters an opportunity to engage in understanding, critiquing, and analyzing motions passed by governments. It allows debaters to engage their research skills and understanding levels of complex policy matters and give their feedback on what they think about the same.
  2.   Analytical Debate Motions – this refers to motions drawn from real-life situations that are to be analyzed by debaters to determine their effect, strengths, weaknesses, or competencies. It provides a unique opportunity for debaters to engage their analytical skills and critique skills in their debating experience.
