Motions Debated in 2010
The exact wording of the motions will not be released until 20 minutes before the start of each debate round. However, the six topic areas, in alphabetical order, are:
Dying Alaska Native Languages
Participants will not know which side they will be debating until 20 minutes prior to the round.
