This House would allow incarcerated felons to vote.



Debaters should prepare and argue both sides. There will be three rounds of debate (the first two will be randomly paired, the third will be power-matched) followed by a public final round between the top two teams, and an awards ceremony.


Mrs. H. will leave her place at 8:25 and the kids probably won't return until about 5:00 PM. at the earliest. Debaters may text their parents with updated times.

Parental Attendance

Parents do not attend these competitions. You are warmly invited and encouraged to attend the state competitions in the spring.


Debaters may pack their lunches or buy tickets for pizza and drinks when they arrive. Pizza will be $2 per slice and bottles of water and lemonade will be $1 each. 


Western business attire.  Boys wear a jacket and tie; girls wear a skirt or dress and a sweater or jacket.  If you are in need of any article of clothing please let Ann know so she can put out a group email.  We have been pretty good at coming up with clothing to share.  


We are required to provide trained judges. Please let us know if you are interested in training to learn to be a judge. It's a lot of fun! 

Indicate below if you are interested in either judging or training to learn.  We will let you know if we need you once we know the number of participants. 


The total cost including registration, participation, judging and coach expenses is $61.
