there’s exactly one month to our tournament, so here are the motions to prepare for Finnish National Schools Debating Championships 2013 on the 12th and 13th of December:
This house believes that EU should put pressure on Israel to give up its nuclear weapons.
This house would set minimum educational standards for politicians
This would punish the parents of obese children
This house would punish celebrities more severely for crimes committed
These are not in a particular order. Two of these will be in preliminary rounds, one in semi-finals and one will be the motion for the final. In addition we’ll have one impromptu motion as a preliminary round. You’ll get one hour to prepare for that motion before the round.
Have fun preparing, good luck !
