Silver da Vinci - Thomas McGarry, thomas Markwell, Samuel, Nour Idress, Mohammad, Khadija, Jonathan.
Gold da Vinci - Efon
Highest scoring scholar from our delegation - Mariam Acuil (Gold)
That’s 2 gold medals and 15 silver medals. We are so proud of these students who have worked hard all year, not just the past few days, and have shown a great attitude throughout the competition this week. They’ve had huge days with sometimes very little sleep and have been an absolute pleasure to spend time with.
In today’s closing ceremony, Sam Erneste and Paul Paul proudly carried the flags for their home countries, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan respectively. It was a great moment.
Six times a year qualified teams are invited from over 130 regional rounds to join us at Global Rounds that bring together our entire worldwide community.
Students experienced scavenger hunts, keynote speeches, panel discussions, our signature Scholar’s Ball, and, of course, all the competitive and community-building events that drew them to the World Scholar’s Cup in the first place, from the Debate Showcase to the Scholar’s Bowl.
Just as at the other five Global Rounds, many of the top teams will earn invitations to the annual Tournament of Champions at Yale University, and participants will learn, debate, and build new friendships among fellow scholars from all over the world. In Sydney. Isaac Cashman, Thomas McGarry and Harry Lucas have qualified for the Tournament of Champions at Yale University.
Congratulations to all these students.
