POLOKWANE – You might ask yourself, what exactly is the World Scholar’s Cup Tournament?
It is an international team academic program with students participating from over 50 countries around the world.
A team for the World Scholar’s Cup is composed of three students. The teams are usually made up of students from the same school, but mixed teams are allowed.
Each World Scholar’s Cup Regional Round consists of four main events: the Scholar’s Challenge, Collaborative Writing, The Team Debate, and the Scholar’s Bowl. In addition to these four main events, at select tournaments additional activities take place. These activities are both social and academic, and strive to solidify the community aspect of the World Scholar’s Cup.
The tournament recently came to Limpopo for the first time and was hosted at Mitchell House.
