Oceans is selected as 2014-15 policy debate topic

On January 10, 2014, ballots from 31 states, the National Catholic Forensic League, National Debate Coaches Association and the National Forensic League were tabulated at NFHS headquarters to select the 2014-15 national high school policy debate topic. Oceans was selected over Middle East Policy Reform with 71% of the votes.

In October the five topic areas were narrowed to two as part of a two-stage balloting process. Use of the second ballot assures that a majority of coaches across the nation favor the chosen topic area and resolution.
