GEMS World Academy – Switzerland will host the 3rd annual Swiss regional round of the World Scholar’s Cup on May 29 2016 —bringing together students from the area for a day filled with learning, healthy competition and fun. We would like to invite a delegation from your school to join us on the day.

The World Scholar’s Cup is fast becoming one of the most recognized, most joyful, far-reaching extracurricular activities in the world, with over 15,000 students participating at 50 different regional events in 2015.
This year the theme is An Imperfect World.  As part of the programme, students undertake several academic and social challenges that encourage them to practice leadership and important skills such as debating, collaborative writing, researching and problem-solving.

Junior Scholars (ages 10-14) and Senior Scholars (ages 15+) earn invitations to either the Global Round in Bangkok or the Mini Global Round in Prague. A special year-end conference, the Tournament of Champions, is hosted by Yale University.
To register a delegation for the World Scholar’s Cup round at our school on May 29, 2016, please find a copy here or contact us for the necessary form. Schools may register as many teams as they have interested students.

To help in getting started, the World Scholar’s Cup organizing team is always excited to meet new participants in person and present to students at invitational assemblies; you can reach them to arrange a visit or ask questions about the program through us or directly at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We hope you will be able to join us this May, and at future World Scholar’s Cup events hosted by GEMS World Academy, Switzerland.

Kind regards,
