This is just a reminder that we are approximately 3 months away from the deadline for submitting topic papers for the NPTE 2018. As the school year is starting for most of us, I wanted to encourage everyone to set aside some time in our schedules to write topic papers for this year’s NPTE. Thank you to everyone who participated last year–it was wonderful to have such a strong set of papers!
The submission guidelines are as follows:
Controversy area process: https://www.nptedebate.org/tournament_rules#article-i-section-1-b
Please send proposals to email@example.com when completed.
As per last year’s requirements, please make sure proposals are 3-4 pages in length and include background/importance of the controversy area, potential affirmative arguments, potential negative arguments, at least six potential resolutions under the controversy area, and a bibliography. Both students and coaches are encouraged to write topic paper proposals!
The deadline for submission is November 30, 2017.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
