Welcome to the International Competition for Young Debaters 2023! ICYD is an annual competition in the British Parliamentary format (BP) for students below and including Year 10 (English school years).

More detailed information can be found on our ICYD specific website, icyd.org.uk

ICYD is being hosted by the Cambridge Union this year with the majority of regional rounds taking place across the United Kingdom on Saturdays between January and March 2023, as well as several international rounds also occurring during this time.

Finals day will be held in late April 2023 at the prestigious Cambridge Union, with the best teams from each regional round being invited to compete.

This is a unique opportunity for aspiring younger debaters to compete on an international level with other debaters of a similar age! Please feel free to look around the site or to email us with any questions at icyd.convenor@cus.org.
