There are 4 key challenges as part of the India Round
Team Debate - Each team debates three times, on motions across all the subjects, from policy to poetry. You may be arguing whether parents should have access to surveillance cameras at schools - or whether women make better superheroes. Debate is your chance to apply all that you've learned to make the most persuasive case you can. And, win or not, after each debate, you'll give the other team feedback on how to improve.
Scholar's Bowl - Every team in the theater. Every team with a clicker. Every question harder than the one before. Your team will work together to solve analytic questions and multimedia challenges. Click your answers before time runs out, and don't be surprised if you're asked to connect a poem you studied to a clip from your favourite TV Show
Collaborative Writing - Speak with the power of your pen (or pencil!) You'll be given six prompts, from each of the six subject areas, ranging from creative scenarios to explore to persuasive arguments to make. Two easy rules to remember: as a team you only need to write three of the six, and each of you needs to answer a different prompt.
Scholar's Challenge - It's multiple choice, so make multiple choices. The Challenge looks like any other test, but with an alpaca-powered twist: you can mark more than one answer per question. The fewer you mark; the more points you can earn if you're right. (Yes, that means you can finally guess C and D... and also A, B, and E.)
