FDT students reaches Octo-Finals at US Nationals
In yet another international tournament FDT’s students have gone above and beyond and achieved excellent results. Last weekend over 10,000 students from across the US and around the world came together online in the largest academic competition on earth: the US National Speech and Debate Tournament. We are so proud to announce that FDT Red (Emily Ni, Vivian Gu, Nicholas Viegas, Jena Yue, Ellen Li) made it to the Octo-Final round and were also named the Top International Team in the Worlds Schools Debate category at the tournament. Moreover, congratulations to FDT Blue (Darren Yang, Nora Zhu, Jerry Zhang, Angela Lu, Sean Oh) who made it to Triple Octo-Finals. These results are even more impressive considering that the Worlds Schools category was the largest category at the tournament featuring over 100 teams.
Also, we want to congratulate Emily Ni who placed as the 4th place speaker overall and the Top International Speaker among nearly 700 speakers at the tournament.
Congratulations to all our students!
