If a negative team convincingly argues that a case does not fit under one of these areas, judges shall make a decision that the negative won the debate. There is no guarantee that case areas are topical. The fact that a case fits one of these novice case areas does not mean that the case is topical nor that it is not topical. Judges shall determine the topicality of the affirmative plan based on the argumentation presented in the debate.
Awards will be given to at least the top 5 teams and speakers in each division, and all competiors in the top 50% of teams and speakers will receive recognition.
