Bangkok Not-so-Mini Global Round

August 28—September 2 | KBank Siam Pic-Ganesha Center of Performing Arts

Every year we invite qualifying teams from over 160 regional rounds to join us at one of our many Global Rounds, distributed around the world to allow easy access for our entire community. Some are large, some are not-so-small; they all have in common great diversity, breathtaking awkwardness, and a wry love of learning. There are also super large alpacas for everyone, because we know you’ll need pillows for the flight home.


The World Scholar’s Cup will be returning to Bangkok this summer for our second-ever Not-so-Mini Global Round. Write, debate, challenge, bowl, ball and scavenge with fellow scholars from near and far as you explore the malls, traffic, and cultural sites of Thailand. Our main venue is a lovely theater on the top floor of a mall with two Starbucks, so you’ll have plenty of access to caffeine (which you are too young to consume) to keep you moving through a week of intense learning and unexpected mischief.

Just as at all of our Global Rounds, teams will have the chance to earn invitations to our annual Tournament of Champions at Yale University where they will learn alongside and build new friendships with Painted Warrior (our very own real-life, non-CGI alpaca) and fellow scholars from all over the world.
