Ivy Bridge Academy students shine at the 2024 IPPF National Tournament!

Ivy Bridge Academy students won 2nd Place in the finals and Won the Speaker Award of the 23rd annual International Public Policy Forum (IPPF).

This global debate competition, organized by the Brewer Foundation and NYU, took place on May 4, 2024, in New York City. Eight teams were vying for the $10,000 grand prize.

Coached by Dr. Michael Hester, the IBA team included students Rikhil Ranjit, Aanya Baddela, Alyssa Chen, Saanvi Kadiyala, Claire Park, Ethan Nam, Gene Yoon, Olivia Tye, Rajveer Nadkar, Rikhil Tamilselvan, Saanvi Sinha, Sanjana Kadiyala, Shera Ramineni, Jessica Selvaganesan.

Ivy Bridge AcademyAdvances to “Sweet 16” Round of IPPF Global Debate Competition Ivy Bridge Academy

The IPPF is sponsored by the Brewer Foundation and New York University

Hundreds of debate teams from around the world entered the 2022-23 International Public Policy Forum (IPPF) competition, but only 16 remain – including a team of students from Ivy Bridge Academy in Johns Creek, Georgia.

By advancing into the “Sweet 16” round, the students remain eligible to win an all-expenses-paid trip to the IPPF Finals in New York City, where the IPPF World Champion will be awarded a $10,000 grand prize. The Ivy Bridge Academy team is the only team from Georgia to advance this round.

Sponsored by the Brewer Foundation and New York University, the IPPF is the first and only competition that gives high school students from around the world the opportunity to engage in written and oral debates on issues of public policy.

“The teams advancing demonstrate excellence at research, writing, and advocacy,” says William A. Brewer III, partner at Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors and a founder of the IPPF. “The 16 teams remaining will compete in a final round of written debates – in hopes of moving on to oral debates during the IPPF Finals in New York City.”

The IPPF’s 22nd annual competition began in October 2022, as 220 teams, representing schools in 22 countries and 31 U.S. states, submitted qualifying round essays affirming or negating the IPPF topic, “Resolved: The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is an effective model for international cooperation.” Those essays were reviewed by a committee, which determined the top 64 teams based on the overall quality of each 2,800-word essay.

In November, the top 64 teams began a single-elimination, written debate competition. Each team was assigned a position (affirmative or negative) and then volleyed papers back and forth with another team via email for the next six weeks. A panel of judges reviewed the essays and selected the winning teams. In the “Round of 64,” Ivy Bridge Academy advanced over Cornerstone Collegiate Academy of Seoul from Republic of Korea. In the “Top 32” round, Ivy Bridge Academy advanced over Artemis Debate MS from Cape Town, South Africa.

The “Sweet 16” round is now underway. Ivy Bridge Academy is competing against Notre Dame San Jose from San Jose, California.The top 16 teams represent schools from 11 U.S. states, Singapore and Canada.

On March 30, the “Elite 8” teams will be announced. If Ivy Bridge Academy advances, the team will win a trip to New York City to compete in the IPPF Finals on May 6, 2023, at the Harold Pratt House. The IPPF Finals give students the opportunity to supplement their written scholarships with oral advocacy – competing in debates in front of some of the world’s foremost experts in business, law,and politics. Judges will include Brewer and New York University President Emeritus John Sexton, among others. The winning team will take home the “Brewer Cup” and the $10,000 grand prize.

The “Sweet 16” teams are:

Amity Regional High School in Woodbridge, Connecticut
BASIS Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona
Bergen County Debate Club in Fort Lee, New Jersey
EEC Debate in Toronto, ON, Canada
H.Edu Institute in San Mateo, California
Hamilton High School (Team 2) in Chandler, Arizona
The Hockaday School in Dallas, Texas
Ivy Bridge Academy in Johns Creek, Georgia
John Handley High School in Winchester, Virginia
Mountain View-Los Altos Speech and Debate in Mountain View, California
Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado
Notre Dame San Jose in San Jose, California
Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach, Florida
Potomac Oak in Rockville, Maryland
UWC South East Asia in Singapore
Wasatch Independent Debate League in Riverton, Utah

About the IPPF and the Brewer Foundation:

The IPPF was founded in 2001 by the Brewer Foundation and is now jointly administered with New York University. The program is available to all high schools around the world – public and private – for free. The IPPF is endorsed by leading forensic agencies, such as the National Association for Urban Debate Leagues, the International Debate Education Association, the Impact Coalition, Associated Leaders of Urban Debate Leagues, and the National Debate Coaches Association.

The Brewer Foundation is a private, non-profit organization funded by companies, individuals and the national litigation firm of Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors. With offices in New York and Dallas, the Foundation has achieved widespread recognition for its efforts to create, fund and manage a variety of educational outreach programs.
