  • The event span will be 2.5 hours.

  • The event will have two rounds.

First round

The first round will have informal topics. Two teams will go against each other in random order and based on random selection.

The rebuttal round will last for two minutes for each of the teams.

  • The team supporting the motion must not shift its point of view. The same goes for the opposition, who must oppose the motion completely (whatever their private opinions may be).
