"This house believes..." - a formal, competitive debate format featuring a sharply framed motion that is proposed by one side and opposed by another. The 'winner' will be declared by which team has swayed more audience members between the two votes. This follows a formal structure beginning with delegates casting a pre-debate vote on the motion that is either for, against or undecided. Each panelist presents a seven-minute opening statement, then each speaker can offer a two minute rebuttal to the opposition's argument. After which the chair takes questions from the audience with inter-panel challenges. Finally, each panelist delivers a two-minute closing statement, and the audience delivers their second (and final) vote for comparison against the first.
