Each debate will run for 22 minutes, with an 8 minute break in between rounds. The debate will follow a formal parliamentary-style, where competitors will present an entertaining and reasonable argument to the presented topic. Each round will begin with the moderator giving a brief introduction to the proposition and opposition speakers, along with the resolution. Each debate will be separated into 3 stages: opening remarks, open discussion, and closing remarks.

Opening Remarks: Beginning with the proposition, speakers from each team will have 4 minutes to address the resolution.
Open Discussion: Speakers from each team can freely address and heckle their opponent for 4 minutes.
