What is The Cosmos


Think about debating's take of Saturday morning football...

The Cosmos Championship is a global, virtual debating platform for high school students of any skill level. 

Over the course of our five-month seasons, we host several debates and events every week to accommodate all of the regions of the world.

For experienced debaters, The Cosmos Championship acts as the perfect training ground to practice debating on an international stage in order to expand frontiers and become a better debater. Debaters also get the opportunity to try out different formats!

For participants who are new to debating, The Cosmos Championship acts as the perfect platform to try debating out in a low pressure and social environment, while engaging with people who live thousands of Kilometers away.

One way or another it is an unprecedented opportunity: an absolute score!
