For the second time in house history, the House of Churchill won Interregnum IX: Duty and the House Cup after a commanding performance in Interregnum speech, debate, art, and other competitions.
Churchill had an especially strong performance in Interregnum’s parliamentary debate competition, widely viewed as the most fiercely competitive event in Interregnum. Rising seniors Josh Craddock and Noah Heinz won the grand final debate with an overall record of 7 wins, 1 loss.
The motion of the final debate was: “This House believes that Bonhoeffer should not have conspired to kill Adolf Hitler.” Churchill faced the House of Margaret Thatcher, and was unanimously declared winner after the hour long debate. The full video of the round can be watched below.
For the House of Churchill, winning the House Cup comes after a year of hard work and determination.
When asked how proud he was of the House’s success, Churchill president Brandon Trotter said, “I'm not proud of my house for winning, I'm proud of my house for how hard they have worked this year. Winning is only the result of their hard work and I couldn't be more impressed by their dedication to excellence.“
After winning the Cup, the House of Churchill spent the proceeding days celebrating with burgers, steak, and drinks.
