Category:The People Speak Global Debates
The People SpeakGlobal Debates occur during ten days in October and March and deal with one topic of contemporary relevance.
The Goal: Participating students will research the selected topic and prepare clear, persuasive arguments for both sides. The debate teams organize an event at their school that will draw the largest number of students they can to hear the arguments presented by the team. All students will vote for the argument they felt was most compelling and persuasive. Votes will be tallied from participating schools with the results appearing on the TPS site in November.
