Binghamton University has announced its 2nd annual online debate tournament. All the details, including how to register, can be found on the website at- http://speechdebate.binghamton.edu/Tournaments/7/Home/binghamton-university-s-2nd-annual-online-debate-tournament/

 

Last year the tournament featured 100 competitors from around the United States in both high school and college. This year entries are open to any enrolled high school or undergraduate in the world. Prizes include Amazon gift cards, books, hoodies, t-shirts, and more. Registration is free and instructors are encouraged to sign up as judges.

 

This year's resolution is: RESOLVED: The United Nations should adopt a resolution decrying or demanding an end to the annual dolphin hunt in Taiji, Japan.

 

The tournament is already sponsored by PETA2, The Institute for Critical Animal Studies, and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

 

The website also features many national videos of college debate rounds if you click "Videos" on the top navigation bar and follow the links to "Live Policy Debate." We're trying to grow a collection of speech videos as well.

There's actually a pretty big diversity of styles people bring to the online format. If you check out last year's videos a bunch of people in the final rounds were going pretty fast. However, we do recommend making it more accessible depending on your judge and opponent, especially given that the tournament is international this year.

 

$100 Amazon Gift Card for 1st place. Prizes for the top 10 competitors in both high school and college,

 

Registration ends 4/19 and the first video is due up on 4/21.
