The Bait gives students from various schools a chance to pit their minds against each other. The principal motive of The Bait is to examine every side of important and controversial issues in an atmosphere of reasoned argument and respectful discourse. The most apex skill debaters learn is the ability to think meticulously and critically.
Participation in a competition like Bait promotes problem-solving and innovative thinking and helps students to build links between words and ideas that make concepts more meaningful. The competition requires students' inclination to recognize how others think, which improves their ability to co-operate with others and resolve conflicts. This year, The Bait returns once again, with the promise of heated and thought-provoking debates occurring consecutively, day after day. The Bait has evolved as a national event emboldened with the success of its previous events.
