NEW YORK (TIP): Kapur, an Indian American Sikh
 high school student at Valley High School junior in West Des Moines, 
Iowa, has won this year’s National Speech and Debate Tournament which is
 considered as the most prestigious high school competition in the US.


The win continued his impressive string 
of victories, which included first-place finishes at the Emory 
University, Minneapple and Harvard University tournaments and the 
Barkley Forum for High Schools.


As an original orator, Kapur composed 
his own persuasive speech addressing a social issue. His speech, “Let’s 
Dance,” started out with a lively Bollywood
 dance and focused on his experiences as a Sikh American youth. He 
earned top rankings in the semifinal and final rounds of the Tournament 
of Champions before earning the championship trophy.



   




The Tournament of Champions is the most 
prestigious high school speech and debate competition in the U.S. To 
qualify, debaters must receive two bids, earned by advancing to late 
elimination rounds at select individual tournaments. Held annually at 
the University of Kentucky, the tournament provides the most successful 
debaters from individual tournaments with a chance to compete with each 
other. Valley seniors T.J. Foley and Trent Gilbert also made it to the 
elimination rounds of the Tournament of Champions.
