18th National Debating Championship


Witness greatness as more than 300 participants of the best minds from all over the Philippines convene for the annual grit and grind intellectual and emotional competition to see who deserves to be called the Philippines’ best.

The La Salle Debate Society, co-presented with Vende Philippines and in partnership with Mondelez International, Uber, ClickTheCity.com, kami.com.ph and WhenInManila.com present the 18th National Debating Championship.

               The National Debating Championship, in its 18th year, is the largest national debate tournament in the Philippines. It will be hosted by one of the most renowned debating universities in Asia, De La Salle University-Manila. DLSU also hosted the World Universities Debating Championships, the Olympic of debate, last 2012, which led to garnering the TAYO (Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations) Award from the President of the Philippines himself.  This year’s NDC in DLSU will surely prove to be one for the ages.

The 18th NDC will be in De La Salle University-Manila, from December 17-22, 2016. It will also have its much awaited socials events in Manila Ocean Park and La Castellana, Intramuros.
