Summit High School Debate Team--Live Debate 

The teams will be debating whether right-to-work laws in the US are beneficial or harmful.

The Summit High School Debate program is a student-led group of debaters specializing in three forms of debate: Public Forum, Lincoln Douglas and Parliamentary debate. Summit High School debaters consistently rank nationally. This school year the debate team has already received three gold bids and two silver bids for the prestigious national Tournament of Champions, held annually at the University of Kentucky.

Students will be using a type of debate called "Public Forum".

Public Forum (also known as PF) was founded in 2002 and is debated by two teams with two people on each team. PF debates center on current events and are designed to be accessible to the average citizen. PF is focused on a facts and so relies on evidence to construct arguments. Topics (or resolutions) are selected each month nationally, and debaters research and prepare cases based on that month's topic.
