    Comments: You have good energy in your voice when you speak. I would suggest providing some sources for your opening speech in the citation box and not just verbally. I also think you need to spend more time getting into the solvency of your plan. You spend a lot of time explaining why drinking sugary drinks is bad. But you don't spend much time explaining why schools banning the sale would cause kids to not drink them (versus drinking them at home or bringing them to school with them).

    You need to do a better job at responding to the solvency claim (ie that kids won't just drink them at home). Your step in the right direction argument is good, but you should spend more time developing that argument.

    Great job providing from the cites.
    I like your argument about how juice can be as bad as soda. However, a ban on sugary drinks might ban juice as well. Your argument on how sugary drinks will still be consumed regardless of if schools sell sugary drinks or not. I would also suggest that you provide sources within the cite box instead of just mentioning them verbally. You could impact out your small/local business argument more than you do.

    I like your argument that we should stop the consumption at home, not at schools. However the way you explain this argument makes it seem like we should ban sugary drinks at home AND at schools. Why should schools not have the ban? I'd extend your arguments about local businesses here as a result. A lot of your second speech is just defense. But more offensive. Why is the ban bad instead of just might not solve. Your diabetes argument is a good impact to your opposition debate. You also do good at bringing in the ethos and pathos to your speech.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Eesha Kodali

    Reason for Decision:

    Juliet spends too much time extending defense and not focusing on her offense. You need to spend more time making the argument why the sale of sugary drinks should be banned. I vote for the opposition because I don't think the proposition proves that banning sugary drinks will stop kids from drinking sugary drinks. I think this is a very good debate. But I think the proposition needs to do more time explaining why she wins the round, and not just why Eesha isn't correct about all of her points. Juliet gets caught up in the trees and forgets to contextualize the forest. If banning sugary drinks in schools won't solve the problem then why should I vote for the proposition? Go back to your step in the right direction argument or make some impacts that are specific to drinking sugary drinks in schools instead of just talking about why sugary drinks are bad in general. Again, very good debate!
