    Use of evidence: 2.5 2.8
    Delivery skill: 3 3.7
    Coherence of arguments: 3.5 3.2
    Responsiveness to opponent: 3.8 3.4
    Identification of key points: 4.1 3.6
    Comments: Good arguments and good job following along with what key points needed to be addressed.

    One thing you should work on is more confidence in your delivery style. I think preparing more of your speech ahead of time would be beneficial.
    Delivery style was clear and coherent. Good job keeping the speech organized and responding to points.

    You need to impact the procedural argument - just saying it is 'against the rules' is not enough to explain why its bad. Explain how because the speech was late, you were given less time to prepare, which creates less in depth debates which means it hurts the education you could've gained in the debate.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Matt Sausville

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote pro - the loss of education that comes from missing school due to negative health effects from sugary sodas is something we should prevent. I need the opposition to explain why a loss of freedom would be worse than a loss of education, but many of the things you explain as possible outcomes have happened, such as banning cell phone use in class or dress codes, so banning sodas wouldn't cause as much of a slippery slope as the speech says it would.
