2022-23 ippf finals

In March, the 2022-23 top eight teams were announced. These teams win all-expenses-paid trips to New York City to compete during IPPF Finals Weekend, which begins on Friday, May 5, 2023.


Finals Weekend kicks off on Friday evening with a Welcome Reception at the New York Athletic Club. During the reception, teams have an opportunity to meet the other Elite 8 teams, members of the IPPF Advisory Board, and former IPPF champions. 


On Saturday, teams supplement their written advocacy with oral argumentation. Debates take place at The Harold Pratt House. To meet this year's final panel judges, click here.

The IPPF Finals will air LIVE from New York on the IPPF Facebook page, located here. The semifinals begin at 10:10 a.m. EST and the final debate will be broadcast at 3:30 p.m. EST.


Following the debates, an Awards Ceremony is held at the Pratt House and the IPPF World Champion is named. That team is awarded a $10,000 grand prize and the Brewer Cup!
