HIGH SCHOOL DEBATE TOPICS
High School public forum debate topics are proposed by coaches. The National Forensics League (NFL) publishes several topic choices and each school has one vote to select the topic of choice. The winning topic will be published on the NFL's website on the 1st of the month prior to the date of the competition. So for example the February topic is announced on January 1st. This gives debaters at least a month to prepare for the topic.
