If you are having trouble viewing the image, the resolutions are:
Public Forum- Resolved: The benefits of First Amendment protection of anonymous speech outweigh the harms.
Lincoln-Douglas- Resolved: Inaction in the face of injustice makes individuals morally culpable.
Cross-Examination/Policy- Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its non-military exploration and/or development of the Earth’s oceans.
