Styles of Debate and Other Events

Because debate is an activity practiced worldwide, there are many different ways that people debate. SEDA sends debaters to national events, and even qualifiers for international events. This means our debaters need to learn a variety of different styles of debate. While the basic skills remain the same, the number of people per team, speaking times, expectations, and even the number of teams vary by style. 

SEDA also hosts and sends delegates to public speaking tournaments and model legislature.
