The "March Madness" of Gun Control Debates

Beginning October 28th we will launch the debate competition that is framed by the statement "We Must Become A Nation of Tighter Gun Restrictions."

Each student must be prepared to argue either side of the debate.

Each team must have an opening statement limited to 1 minute.

Your grade improves largely on two factors: 1) advancing through each round to the final championship and 2) effective participation throughout each round that requires a minimum of four points of argument to address the opposition that advances the debate.

Extra credit points assigned to quiz/test scores are available for those who dress in a business attire while competing in the debate...a point for each round.
