The president of the Schools Debating Club in Kuwait, Bader Al-Shatti, pointed out that the students who were selected for the debate were filtered through the youth creativity league program of the General Authority for Youth and entered into a three-month training program. Through this program, the participants were filtered, and four of them were selected. He added that the students were trained at the youth centers of the General Authority for Youth.

Al-Shatti said that the team was able to surpass the competing teams in the tournament without losing any debate. This is the first time a Kuwaiti team has won this tournament, and two of its members also won individual awards. Al-Shatti expressed his happiness with this victory.
