The Debating Matters Leeds Salon Individual Prize

Each year The Leeds Salon awards an Individual Prize at the Debating Matters Yorkshire Regional Final / Yorkshire Championship to the student who we feel best represents the spirit of Enlightenment inquiry by asking lots of good, incisive questions – whether as a panellist and / or audience member. The winner receives a book which represents an exemplory piece of contemporary Enlightenment literature.
