    Category Xavier Edmead Maya Hulyalkar
    Use of evidence: 4.1 3.9
    Delivery skill: 4.9 3.7
    Coherence of arguments: 4 4.1
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.4 2
    Identification of key points: 5.4 2.5
    Comments: Your delivery was really great. Very focused. Fantastic points being made and the way you break up your arguments is great. I like the way you take the text of the resolution literally and go in on the word ban and why that is problematic. Great way to set up this round!

    The decision is for the Proposition: Xavier Edmead

    Reason for Decision:

    Xavier has answers to every single point Maya makes and is framing his impacts in a way that says allowing kids to learn to make decisions is outweighted by the potential for getting diseases.
