Youth Forum: Meet the Spirit Award winner
Submitted by Manos Moschopoulos on 22 July 2012
Toader Mateoc, this year's Spirit Award for Coaches winner, talks to us about the award and the Youth Forum in Mexico.
The Spirit Awards, awarded every year to a coach and a debater, are presented to the participants that embody the values of the IDEA Youth Forum after a public vote among all attendees. Toader was an obvious pick, as he is a dedicated Youth Forum alumnus of mixed heritage who travelled to Mexico to coach in the KPDC and Mixed Teams Track. He now volunteers as an intern for IDEA New York.
As the Youth Forum strives to be more than a regular debating event, it is the work of individuals both during the debates and workshops and during the rest of the Forum that helps create the Forum experience - a diverse environment where students meet with their peers from around the world, exchange ideas and views and create friendships that last for a lifetime.
