Those wishing to learn more about Penn for Youth Debate or make a contribution to its efforts are encouraged to contact PFYD President Amy Wei or Vice-President Mike Contillo at pfyd@pfyd.org.

This year’s Penn Round Robin – formerly known as the Perspectives Round Robin – is unique in that it combines a challenging, high-caliber weekend of debate with an exciting and enriching taste of the college experience. The debaters will stay in Penn’s beautiful college dormitories, receive a personal campus tour, and interact with Penn students throughout the event. Between rounds, Penn for Youth Debate will host interactive panel discussions with Penn students in which the debaters will have the opportunity to learn about college debate and the admissions process. Representatives from a variety of disciplines, from pre-med to pre-law, will be on hand to answer their questions and give them valuable perspective on academic life.
