This week the National Speech and Debate Association announced the topic options for November’s Public Forum debate topic. The options are:
Choice 1 – Resolved: On balance, the benefits of genetically modified foods outweigh the harms.
Choice 2 – Resolved: In the United States, a comprehensive federal water policy that restricts residential use is preferable to one which restricts agricultural use when the two are in conflict.
Member schools in the National Speech and Debate Association are encouraged to vote for their preferred topic before Tuesday, September 30. Additionally, students who have registered for an account with the National Speech and Debate Association may also vote for their topic preference.
