The team USA Blue (Leila Saklou, Ranen Miao, Shreyoshi Das) managed to win as proposition over USA Red (Nikhil Ramaswamy, Emily Rantham, Piper Doyle) in opposition at the Alfred Tuna Snider World Schools Debate Tournament in New York. The tournament is named as a tribute to the 2015 deceased Alfred C. “Tuna” Snider due to his efforts in promoting debate. The motion for the final was: THW hold multinational companies liable for actions committed by corporations in their supply chain. Adjudicating the final were Syed Reefat Aziz (chair), Maja Cimerman, Nelson Kezoh, Warish Zaman and Emerson Braithwaite. Ranen Miao also got the top speaker award.

Participating in the tournament were 18 teams from Canada, the USA and Bangladesh. Chief Adjudicators were Syed Reefat Aziz, Nelson Kezoh and Bojana Skrt. As usual for tournaments in the WSD format, the participants debated prepared and impromptu motions.
