    Use of evidence: 4.5 5
    Delivery skill: 4 4.1
    Coherence of arguments: 5 5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.6 4.6
    Identification of key points: 4 4.5
    Comments: I like the emphasis on the word "sold" versus "banned." I think your first speech could have bigger impacts/harms than you give it. Ie what's so wrong with the disorders you mention? Try to talk with more energy in your voice versus being so monotone. Also, make use of the places I suggested you go to do your research versus just websites. At least make it look better in the citation block.

    Good at coming back with reliable sources. However, you should start with that and defend it instead of having to play catch-up. You need to go back and emphasize why the ban on "selling" is important. You start going on the defense instead of proving the thesis of your initial argument.

    Great job attacking your opponents sources. However, in your last speech it potentially eats up too much of your time,
    Good speaking points and responsiveness to your opponent. However, you should have some stronger points of your own for why sugary drinks shouldn't be banned (the school money issue is probably your best argument against the ban). It also seems like you shift to talking about fruit juices versus what the proposition is talking about.

    Good framing of the debate from the start. I would immediately go to the impacts that you outline in your first speech and have a bigger emphasis on that earlier on as well. Good response with your attack on milk and her alternative drink choices.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Ian Kim

    Reason for Decision:

    The opposition does a better job of explaining why the impacts of ending the sale of sugary drinks would be negative for schools. The proposition needs to spend more time going back to the harms of why sugary drinks are bad versus just saying that kids will go back to drinking them since they don't have the willpower. Why is it bad that it be sold in schools? Go back to your health arguments and impact out why that's more important than his arguments instead of playing so much defense.

    The proposition closing speech is also suppose to be 2 minutes long. You go for 3:41. While I didn't forfeit you as a result of this I only paid attention to the first 2:30 of it. During that time while you are very responsive you aren't explaining as clear as you need to why you win the debate. Make sure the judges knows why you should win and frame everything through that lens as you answer your opponents arguments.
