    Use of evidence: 5.8 4.5
    Delivery skill: 5.8 4.5

    Identification of key points: 5.8 4.5
    Comments: You gave some really good arguments in your speech and did a good job giving those arguments in your rebuttal and closing.

    The "introduction" you give in your rebuttal does not seem necessary. I would use the time it took to give it to respond to the opposition's argument about why forced sharing with parents in particular is bad.
    You gave a very good argument against forced sharing when you said that sharing should happen by choice.

    Next time, make sure and respond to the arguments given by the proposition, after giving your own case.

    Also, next time, make sure to have citations that others can see themselves. You can use resources that aren't online, but they have to be written down and sent so as to be available to the judge and opponent.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Emme Davis

    Reason for Decision:

    I find the proposition's argument that candy is bad to be persuasive. The proposition cites studies from Purdue University and Penn State that show that eating too much candy is bad for kids. Since kids who share candy with parents will eat less of it, the proposition's case is worth voting for.

    The proposition said that even if the opposition is right to say that sharing should not be forced, the fact that candy is bad should be weighed as a more important argument. The proposition made a good argument here.
