    Comments: I'm really glad in your second speech that you mentioned the benefits of banning do not outweigh the other benefits, that's great to craft comparative statements in debate! When you do that, make sure you specify which harms your benefits outweigh. Make sure you make your best arguments in speeches before your last one so your opponent has the opportunity to respond. Great job! I like how you really spend time answering your opponent's arguments and are really creative in your approach to this question! It's very smart to distinguish which drinks should and should not be banned to point out flaws in your opponents argument. Be sure in your final speech to clearly lay out why your benefits outweigh their harms. Great job!

    The decision is for the Proposition: Maddie Kenyon

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the proposition on the arguments that 1. we should care about the health of students to prevent heart disease and other health problems and 2. that we should assist students in preventing them from developing a caffeine addiction. While these arguments are mainly in the last speech, I think that they are connected enough to arguments made in previous speeches. While I do like the argument about "good sugars," I do not think this idea has as many benefits as does banning sugars. I really enjoyed watching this debate!
