Welcome to the Oregon Debate Education Foundation blog! ODEF was created to help the Oregon Policy Debate community blossom in high schools. Debate has been on a dramatic decline for the last several years here – a sad fact for those who love the activity known as “Oregon Style” Cross-Examination. Our challenge is to make this unique educational and competitive activity available for the next generation of high school students, already growing up starved of intellectual extracurricular activities.

This website is designed to be a comprehensive resource for all students of debate, whether beginning, intermediate, or advanced. Feel free to explore, comment, and let us know what’s missing. Most of all, put it to practice! Debate continues only because the true leaders of our community teach the next generation.

As lifelong debate addicts, teachers, students, and advocates, we hope to see you at a tournament soon!
