A few things:

1. This is a poll; there's no need to lie. No one will see you and know which answer you put down, so there's no need to look like you work harder than you do because you're afraid you'll lose your competitive edge. Conversely, if you work really hard no one needs ot know it's not effortless. I'm just really curious as to how this looks like in high school. If this gets good responses in high school i'd like to see a breakdown by region.

2. Debate work includes cutting cards, filing, writing arguments, practice speeches, speed drills, practice debates etc. It doesn't so much include ev trading, team administration stuff (registering for tournaments etc), posting on cross-x (even educational ones ;) or decorating your boxes.

 

Edit: the other part got cut off

in the summer for the most part i do about 15-17 hours of debate work a week, however once school starts, that number drops drastically... actually once i get a job it will drop drastically too.. oh well

Good point a tourney is 10 hours alone.

 

Lets have some specific catagories.
