Results of the Preliminary Round of GRENLEC Debates Season 10

The GRENLEC Debates is a national inter-secondary school competition, which was started in 2008. The idea originated with the Media Worker’s Association of Grenada, which organised a competition that GRENLEC sponsored.

The GRENLEC Debates is a revival of that competition and relies on collaboration from the public sector, private sector and the media.

The following are the results of the Preliminary Round of GRENLEC’s Debates from 20-22 September 2017. Themes for the 2017 competition include Constitution Reform, Development, Migration and Public Health and Safety.
