Eight members of Hathaway Brown's debate team —Ryan Brady '20, Sejal Sangani '20, Tejal Pendekanti '20, Julia Schilz '20, Amaya Razmi '18, Farah Sayed '19, Katherine Wang '19, and Isha Lele '18— received a very prestigious honor when their International Public Policy Forum (IPPF) essays qualified as two of the “Top 64” teams internationally for the second year in a row. Hathaway Brown School is the only school in the United States with two teams in the Top 64 for two years in a row.
The IPPF is an international competition of “written debate” in partnership with New York University. It is the only contest that gives high school students around the world the opportunity to engage in written and oral debates on issues of public policy.
The Top 64 teams will next compete in a single-elimination, written debate tournament. Teams will continue to debate the topic, “Resolved: International climate accords for greenhouse gas emissions should adopt binding enforcement mechanisms.” Essays will be volleyed back and forth via e-mail and judges will select the advancing teams. This format continues until the final eight teams emerge. Those teams earn an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City to compete in the IPPF Finals on April 21, 2018. The IPPF Champion takes home a $10,000 grand prize.

Congratulations to these girls on this very impressive accomplishment! We wish them luck in their upcoming round of competition.
