RULES
Each team will have two people to be scored based on their arguments. Each team will make an opening statement where they explain their evidence. Then one member of the opposing team would have time to ask questions, going back and forth. So it would go affirmative opening statement, negative Opening Statement, Aff1 questions, Neg1 questions, Aff2 questions, Neg2 questions. Then to conclude each team makes closing statements. We've used Affirmative and Negative because those are policy debate terms. For example, the question would be: "Should Abortion Be Illegal?" The side arguing "yes" would be the Aff, the side arguing "No" would be the Neg. Each team will submit their evidence (articles, news, etc) to the other side beforehand for them to read over. Each team will have one piece of evidence which they are not required to submit to the opposing team. All debate will take place on the RMB.
Debate Week is made possible by the Culture Ministry. Special thanks to Saint Ryvern for helping to organize such a wonderful event. Enjoy!
