Event Description:

Public Forum was added as a new debate event beginning the 2010-11 school year in order to offer a more accessible debate format that is appealing to students and lay judges who have not found traditional debate formats useful to them.

This appeal comes in the form of participants and audience members being able to understand the format without having specialized experience in debate or the fields being discussed. The hope is that Public Forum will build participation in debate, with the belief that once involved many students would participate in other debate events.
