Welcome to the home page for the 2022 YODL #1 '22 tournament hosted by Alaska on Sep 30-1, 2022 for College students.
Status: Tournament Completed
Your squad is cordially invited to the first YODL tournament of the 2022-2023 academic year. At this event, we’ll continue our experiments to explore best practice in BP debating.
YODL tournaments incorporate a number of approaches that are significantly different from traditional BP practice. In brief, the major differences are:
* Each debate decides upon a topic via a topic striking process
* Points of privilege allowed during the round to address equity concerns in-round
* Escalated equity issues handled by the tournament host or designee with the option of involving the host institution's equity and compliance office
*Open deliberation following the debate, to be observed by the debaters
We expect that every participant--debaters, judges and observers--will read, understand and abide by the policies governing participation in YODL events.
