    Topic is "Resolved: When in conflict, a nation's self-interest should outweigh its international commitments to migrants."

    You can take either side.

    Note – too many people have been tagged in Blackboard / Turnitin for plagiarizing.  Don’t put me into the awkward position where I have to turn you in for disciplinary action for plagiarizing something with the speech and debate team!!!  If you use more than a FEW lines – even if you give the source credit – it’s unethical.

    You must submit this the essay to Blackboard AND a hard copy must be on my desk. 

    1600 words 

    Deadline for submitting your essay to Blackboard for cheating checks – 9/27 at 11:59 pm. If you try to submit your work at midnight, it will not be accepted.

    Note that we are signed up to have two or three teams take part in this competition -  Don’t make any plans for the finals weekend because if you quality, I expect you to be in NYC with the team.  If you are not an officer and you would like to form your own team (we can have more than two), let me know who you want on your team and I will register you.
