This House believes that in debating it is more important to participate than to win

Background and context

Most of the debaters have already experienced the brilliant feeling at the end of the debate when the judge declares the results and for this time it is our team that wins. However, we should be asking ourselves, whether winning is really that important? Do we debate to win, or just to participate and have fun? Do we learn more when we win (or when we lose)? IsnĀ“t it in some cases better to lose?

Pro

  • There are no losers in a debate. A debate always has winners - and learners. It is always beneficial to realize one's mistakes and improve them in the future, which is what a losing team is more likely to do, as people usually do not repeat the same mistake twice.
