State Affairs Forum (Middle School & High School)
State Affairs Forum is designed to broaden participants’ knowledge of pre-selected current events topics concerning the state of Texas depending on the year. State Affairs Forum uses the structure of committee hearings with parliamentary procedure where students propose solutions to important current issues. Work alone or in teams of 3 where you create a proposal from the topic list, and present it at the district and state tournaments! SAF encourages debate on these solutions and thereby fosters in-depth understanding of the topics at hand. Delegates are encouraged to be vocal, listen intently, and participate as much as possible.
