The objective of the competition is to promote a strong affinity towards the Tamil Language by empowering participants to use the language to the best of their ability.

It will target the family members (with students and working members) to love Tamil and speak Tamil and the programme will help the participants to gain critical thinking skills and acquire public speaking skills. With the concept of family debate, we hope to achieve quality time being spent by the family members while they prepare for the debate and tap on to each other’s strength and knowledge.

A Team comprises of four members from a family (parents; children of any age, grandparents and working family members) will debate on topics such as culture, language, community development, and personal development.

The judges will select the winning team based on their level of performance, team-work, clarity, spoken Tamil language competency, usage of cross-examination and rebuttal techniques, presentation skills etc., The judges decisions will be final.
