Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both ended up forfeiting the debate in the final round, which is rarely acceptable behavior in any debate setting. Thus, they both lose the chance at conduct points. I would highly recommend you guys try not to forfeit rounds, as it costs you conduct points. S&G - Pro. While Pro had some minor errors, Con had some significant errors in both rounds regarding both spelling and grammar. Due to the higher amount of errors from Con, Pro is awarded these points. Arguments - Tie. This was difficult to decide. Ultimately though, Con failed to rebut anything Pro said in the opening round due to his misunderstanding. He acknowledged this himself in the next round. Furthermore, in the next round, Pro presented a case comparing the benefits seen in other countries to our own here in America. Instead of rebutting that, Con makes an argument for brain development. Since neither rebutted the other properly, this is tied. Sources - Tie. Neither used sources.
