The Bluegrass Debate Coalition (BDC) utilizes the Public Forum Debate resolution released by the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) in our coaching and tournaments. To assist in facilitating a deeper discussion of arguments, the BDC releases completely free topic-specific files, known as the BDC Evidence Packets. Our starter Evidence Packets will include a topic analysis and cards for both the pro and con side to help students research and develop positions for the topic.
