The two-day competition is part of “Ana usharek” (“I participate”), a youth-centered civic and democracy training program delivered by the CPF in cooperation with the National Democratic Institute (NDI) under funding from the USAID.

The competition, as the name implies, entails a debate between student teams on a topic of public interest, in which they are expected to use the evidence-gathering and argumentation skills they acquired through the program to support their arguments on either side.

The program offers a series of guided, interactive discussion sessions on democratic concepts and processes to raise awareness of Jordanian youths on political participation and create safe avenues for the youth to discuss, debate, and exercise democratic principles and international best practices.
