  • Eligibility

    Please note that only non-native English speakers are eligible to compete in NHSDLC tournaments. Students are ineligible if they satisfy either of the following conditions:

    • If the student has lived in a country where English is the official language for more than five years

    • If the student's primary language at home is English

    Our partner league, the Association for Global Debate, hosts competitions for students who are ineligible for the NHSDLC. We encourage those students to register for AGD competitions.


    There is an AGD tournament taking place on March 10-11 in Beijing. Students can register here.
