Any debaters in the high school or collegiate circuit?
I was an FX and PF debater in highschool, and currently do Parli debate (NPDA) for CU Boulder.

I'd love to hear who else from the community is here!

There are a lot of high school debaters here. I did it a few years ago my self. I mainly did LD, but I also did humorous, dramatic and duo interp. I would occasionally do spar debate, and I sat in on quite a few PF debates. If you compete currently, and would like some practice feel free to join my live debating tournament. We'll be doing it through video.

That's really cool. What format is in New Zealand? British Parli, Worlds?

At school it's all World Schools. At university we spend half the year on different variations of Australasia-Asia debating (culminating in Australs) and the second half of the year on BP (culminating in Worlds).

I did PF most of the time, and a little bit of LD. This coming Saturday, I'm doing a small local world schools tournament.

Yes, I used to compete in a parliamentary style debate known as Student Congress for the National Catholic Forensic League back in High-school. Even got to participate in a tournament hosted at Harvard University in Boston my senior year.

My University didn't have a debate team or debate club unfortunately. Hence my participation on this site.

I live in Britain, but I did the International Competition for Young Debaters last year (ICYD), I have been in a Cambridge Union Debating Competition and did the ICYD this year where in May I will be heading to the finals in Oxford.

I did LD (and a little PF) in High School. I will be going to m first Parli tourney soon through APDA, but it's not the same as my beloved LD...

I really want to get involved with Collegiate LD and Policy...
