Policy debate is a research-based speech competition in which students argue for and against a resolution that advocates for change in federal government policy. Students learn and develop “cases” presenting a specific plan for solving the problem implicit in the resolution (e.g. international conflict, poverty, natural resource scarcity). Students practice for at least two hours per week, training students to compete against other teams. The XTH debate team won Best Overall Team during the 2019-2020 school year and we have collected more than 30+ individual and team awards over the past two years!
