These qualities include excellence in and passion for debate, a commitment to helping others, love and respect for the American Debate Association policy debate community and dedication to maintaining friendships despite the pressures of competition. This award is presented annually at the American Debate Association National Championship Award Ceremony.
THE AWARD: The award will be presented at the ADA Nationals
Championship Banquet. The award will include:
- A trophy in the shape of a flame
