As long as I know, there are so many relevant competitions regarding the debates, especially English debating. The upcoming story I’d love to recount is called East Java Varsities English Debate, famously known as EJVED.
On the previous post, I have also written down what’s in my mind about NEO which befriends with EJVED, yet was held earlier. However, these two events are still a part of English Month and this year, it celebrated its 11th annual series-event. It’s perfectly major since not only number of participants who were involved in, but the hard-working team who made this truly happen as well. Thanks to publication team who showed this majestic annual event off to great number of competition seekers. Without them, this would just be a crap competing the losers and such like.
When this post was posted up, EJVED had already been organised exactly a month ago. Recalling what’s happened proves uneasy, yet having discovered some accompanying photos pertinent to the event may aid this post to be done. Hope you guys enjoy this memento.
As mentioned above, EJVED is howsoever a part of EM 11th and will always be. It invited a bunch of universities in East Java, Indonesia to compete in a debating competition. It was undoubted that many of them had eagerly awaited even a long time before it was officially open for registration.
EJVED got its peak season in September, for many debating maniacs had wrapped up their ‘summer’ holiday. The most interesting part was when somebody whose college ain’t in East Java did desire to enter for it. It means that EJVED was supposedly open for those who were studying outta East Java. What a lovely suggestion! Because of high demand, this event cost a high price compared to NEO which served as a competition for high school students. Despite costing an arm and a leg, it remained reasonable though. Seen from the number of participants, they seemed not to mind it.
EJVED was held within 3 days consecutively. It was on 23rd, 24th and 25th November, 2013. The properly admired thing of EJVED is a design. Thanks to my classmate Rizky for bringing out such a gorgeous design that it was even impossible not to draw one’s eyes. That was epic shit and eye-catching as well.
The 3-day EJVED did make the team work as fast as they possibly could and aware of the situation during the proceedings. Since it was completely different from NEO, there were numerous different aspects which were not effortless, for instance, the presence of CA and DCAs, abbreviations for Chief of Adjudicator and Deputy Chief of Adjudicators respectively.
They sometimes and in certain cases drove the committee mad because of their mad demand. It has been known widely that they are actually responsible for the proceedings, especially the debating competition, since they know what to do and how to do technically.
EJVED 2013 took place day and night. At the last day, it was so belated that we were all worried of being ditched of the hall. Nevertheless, it all paid off when the names of the winners were released and surprisingly, my university’s team won. One of the members of the team, so-called Valiant, is Uyun who also partnered me in NEO. It was so delightful to see them raising the cup high. They all deserved commendation for effort they did during EJVED. I would dearly congratulate the winners! The end of EJVED 2013 means that English Month 11th eventually ended as well.
What happened in EJVED 2013 will always stay put in my mind. It was like we never stopped creating such event in the next years. Now that it was wrapped up, we deserved to rest up.
