Robert Watson and Anthony Survance won the inaugural U.S. Sister Cities Youth Debate Challenge in Chengdu earlier this summer. The topic for the debate was “With the Scientific Development, E-books will Replace Printed Books”. The event included students from Chengdu and its four sister cities in the U.S.: Phoenix, Honolulu, San Francisco and Louisville.
While this is an exciting achievement in itself, the two were also singled out for their experience, skill, and leadership, and asked to help their Chinese counterparts improve their English and debating skills.
