    Comments: Great job anticipating your opponents argument and answering them in the first speech before they were even made! I thought it was really impressive and it forced your opponent to get more creative. It would be beneficial in your last speech to mention the harms you did in your first speech such as cancer and obesity so that you have a really strong harm for me to consider against selling sugary drinks. Great job! Your use of evidence in this debate is really persuasive! You did a great job citing a source that bolstered your argument about why schools should be making money off of sugary drinks if children are going to drink them anyways. I also liked how you explained the benefits of other drinks that are considered to be sugary, such as gatorade. Be sure to mention that in your last speech because you always want to have some defensive statements just in case. Great job!

    The decision is for the Opposition: Juliet Quisenberry

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the opposition because I am persuaded by the study that says banning sugary drinks in schools does not actually decrease the amount of sugary drinks children consume. This means that if the proposition is right that corporations profiting is bad, but the opposition is right that schools receive funding from corporations to sell sugary drinks, I think it is better to give schools the ability to make money off of drinks if they will be consumed anyways. I really enjoyed watching this debate!
