Public Forum 
 
Public Forum is a persuasive speech event where debaters clash on issues. Debaters aged 12 and 13  must be prepared both to advocate for and to refute against a given statement or assertion, called a proposition, that expresses a judgment or opinion.
  Team Policy
 
Policy debate is not a pursuit of the “truth” or of the “perfect policy” in an ideal sense, but rather a forum useful to train minds in the art of argumentation. Debaters aged 12-18 must learn to address both sides of an issue, requiring them to come to an understanding of an opponent’s perspective. To succeed in competition, they will need to learn to explain, interpret, apply, analyze, synthesize, solve problems, and communicate information effectively to a judge.
