The St Andrew’s Day Debating Tournament – supported by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament – is the premier event in YSS’s debating calendar. 

Held annually at The Scottish Parliament, this exciting competition pairs pupils from different schools to compete in a day-long tournament. The event culminates in a Grand Final in the main Debating Chamber of the Scottish Parliament.

This competition allows pupils from schools all over Scotland to compete and teams are mentored by university debaters. With its blend of competition, training and mentorship, this is a unique event and opportunity for young debaters.
