    Use of evidence: 3.4 4.2
    Delivery skill: 4.8 5
    Coherence of arguments: 3.9 4.1
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.3 4.7
    Identification of key points: 4.3 4.4
    Comments: Good delivery and creative arguments! Good job isolating what a sugary drink is for the purpose of the debate.

    I need you to compare evidence - in your last speech I only catch you citing 'a journal' without explaining which journal (maybe i missed it). However, you never explain why i should prefer your evidence to the oppositions evidence on the point about the effectiveness of sugary drinks.
    Good organization and great delivery! I like how you used the definition the pro gave and turned it into something that helps your arguments.

    You should extend the argument about schools teaching students about healthy choices - adding some evidence about how that is more effective than a ban would be super helpful for your argument.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Scarlett Quisenberry

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the opposition - I do not believe a ban would be an effective way to curb sugar consumption by children. The opposition uses 2 pieces of evidence to prove why that's true. I also think that the opposition did a good job explaining why the health effects the pro brings up are caused by a multitude of factors and cannot be pinned down to just sugary beverages.
