About the competition

In this competition debates involve one hour unassisted preparation, which means that the 4 team members only find out the topic one hour before the debate, and are then given an hour without any assistance to prepare their case. After 4 such round-robin debates and a series of knock-out finals, the remaining 10 regional champions meet at a 3 day camp for a series of debates to determine the state champion.

Please explore the past winners of the competition, or go to Vimeo to watch the 2020 final debate.
