Further rounds of the competition will take place in 11 other key cities across Pakistan where university students will debate on topics concerning the theme of the competition: Pakistan 2047, says a press statement issued here on Wednesday.

Future winners will then join yesterdays champion Zara Shafique from Institute of Space and Technology, in the grand final where the winner of the Great Debate competition will be announced, and will be awarded with the British High Commission Scholarship.

On winning the Islamabad leg of the GREAT Debate competition, Zara Shafique said, “It was a humbling experience for me. Everyone performed really well and I got a chance to learn a lot from other talented students.

It was very competitive yet at the same time quite an amazing day. I would like to thank the British High Commission for organising this remarkable opportunity and to NUST for conducting it at their prestigious university”.
