Debate

Depending on the debate event, individual students or teams debate issues of values and philosophy or policy and current events.  Events include:

  • Lincoln Douglas Debate (one-on-one value oriented debate)
  • Public Forum Debate (team debate, from a layman’s perspective on current issues of the day)
  • Policy Debate (team debate, in depth, on a single policy topic)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Message from the League Director

Welcome to the 2021-2022 tournament season!  We’re looking forward to an awesome competition season, albeit online. We plan to conduct all debate and limited prep events in real-time online, and will be conducting other speech events via asynchronous online competition (through recorded performances).    Good luck to everyone as we prepare for amazing competitions!
